******This LAB is not due until the END of the PERIOD on MONDAY! We will complete it in class on Monday*****
Today we worked on Investigation #5 - Microscopy Lab.
I demonstrated for students how to wet mount a specimen on a slide.
Each student was then to practice getting the specimen (the newspaper "e") into focus using the low objective and the middle objective. Students needed to write their hypothesis and complete their observations (modeling what they saw) today. We will complete this lab Monday in class and it will be due by the end of the period.
Below are pictures of one of the newspaper "e" specimens under the Low Objective (first picture) and the Middle Objective (second picture).
