In 5th grade, students are expected to compare and contrast the parts of plants and animal cells by gathering evidence from tools, creating models, and labeling the parts. How can we do that without microscopes?! My students need to be able to examine cheek cells, onion cells, and pond water to learn about not only the parts that make up our bodies, but also the microscopic organisms found all around us. Inquiry-based lessons and hands-on labs are the best approach to developing young scientists' minds. With the bacteria kit, students will be apply to explore the world around them and learn to differentiate between helpful and harmful microorganims. They will be able to apply their classroom knowledge to the real-world by discovering where these tiny living creatures live and inferring the environment in which they thrive the best.
