Class experience

US Grade 8 - 11
To become familiar with insect anatomy
To view insects under microscope
To compare parts of different insects, noting differences
I have my BS of Science in Biology, which included studies in Histology and Microbiology. I have taught microscopy within High School Biology Lab setting at local Co-op, as well as on-line through the Outschool platform. 

Personally I am an ever curious Biologist - I've studies mammalogy, marine biology, ornithology, microbiology, aquatic entomology and more. In my classroom I encourage my students to explore and follow there curiosity, ask questions and find answers. I enjoy incorporating traditional learning with technology, helping students gain a deeper understanding material in practical ways.

(Explained in pre-class video)

Learners have option of taking picture through microscope lens using digital camera of phone or other digital device, optional.
