By seventh grade, most of our students have never looked through a microscope. However, as we study life science, students will be learning about cells. Microscopes help seventh graders really grasp the concept of cells, which are too small to see otherwise. Students will learn the parts of the microscope, how the image is "altered" when viewing through the microscope, and how to calculate magnification. Students will then use the microscopes to see first-hand what cells actually look like. They will view plant and animal cells. They will see cell membranes, cell walls, nuclei, and, potentially, other organelles. Once my students fully understand cells and organelles, we will learn about the organization of life, genetics, and ecology. This unit about cells, with the use of microscopes, will be the foundation upon which our school year of life science will be built.
