In my classroom, I have a diverse group of students that are excited about learning. They are teenagers with big dreams and plans for their futures. My students come to class eager to learn how the world around them works and how they can make it better.
My students are 7th graders studying life science.
Our school serves students from a range of socioeconomic backgrounds, which makes them well-rounded individuals because they are exposed to a variety of people and backgrounds. This gives them a well-rounded approach to learning because they start to see how different the world is from their life. I love how incredibly diverse they are in their interests from show choir to hockey, drama to gymnastics.
Learning about living things and how life works is an amazing experience that students really connect to because...it's them! Experience is one of the best learning tools and that is what I want to give my students with the demo-slides of living protozoa as well as crayfish specimens. While learning about how living things are structured and the different body systems, students are able to connect the pieces by looking at a complete living thing. I want my students to compare their anatomy to another living thing, looking for similarities but also differences.
My students will be excited to learn about the diversity of life through this dissection and microscope investigation.
Life is diverse and I want my students to be able to see living things they wouldn't normally be able to see. The demo-slides are prepared slides of LIVING microscopic organisms, allowing students to see that they are always surrounded by life, no matter where they are.
