Starting to use Hand Lenses and Magnification

Today our students revisited their definitions of "What does it mean to be living?"

After that, they moved onto using hand lenses.  They studied text in their book as well as pennies to try to find distinguishing marks.  Many were able to locate initials of the artist who created Lincoln's portrait. 

 The rest of this week we will explore light compound microscopes, how to focus into a specimen and what a good scientific sketch is composed of.
