Wow! The Most Beautiful Word for a Science Teacher’s Ears April 29, 2012

Filed under: Everything Under the Sun — explorergarden @ 5:58 am

We started a unit on the Microscopic World last week. I set up our microscopes — good ones, it turns out! Up to 400X! — and started passing out slides for students to look at. In ever class someone said the magic words. “Wow! Look at this!” It was beautiful.

I ordered live paramecia and amoebas, as well as slides of bacteria and agar plates to grow cultures. I can’t wait to hear those words again when we take samples from the creek, compost, yogurt,blue cheese — everywhere! –and look at what is living in it! Wow! Look at This!
