After the craziness that was inauguration day yesterday, we were able to return to some normalcy today. We started our science lesson by giving a general introduction to microscopes.
Students were given two slides and a small clipping of a letter from a newspaper, and asked to make a dry mount using these materials. Students were then asked to make observations based upon their findings.
We will continue using the microscopes tomorrow, looking at different materials. We are working our way up to looking at aquatic life forms, which we should start in a week or so.
