Learning about Cells

Learning about cells this week for science. Had the girls look at a thin piece of transparent onion skin under a magnifying glass first.

Then, I had them place a thin section of onion skin onto a slide. They put it in their microscope (it's a child's microscope...nothing fancy) and could see the cells of the onion.

It was actually very cool. Brought to life what we were reading about skin and cells.

I just discovered your blog through the Flickr embroidery pool. Your work is beautiful. It seems you have so many good ideas for science, I wondered if you would share your resource, curriculum, wherever you get your sequence for science. I'm a homeschooling mom of two. Thanks!
