This week we learned all about cells. We did a lab where we removed cheek cells (don't worry...it doesn't hurt) and looked at them under the microscope. Along with the cheek cells, we discovered that many of us need to brush and gargle more often - we also found food particles! We practiced using the microscope, staining cells, and drawing what we saw. Students could also take a picture of their cells with their cell phone cameras. One student's turned out so good I had to share it. Students were able to apply what we were learning in class to something real - THEM!
