Introduction to Invertebrates

In this lab, the student will examine invertebrates from a baked potato.  The student will capture and examine invertebrates in the soil using proper field work with a stereo microscope. The student will identify organisms found in the soil with still images and movies with a digital microscope.

Inside A Seed

In this lab, the student will identify the differences of angiosperms, specifically between a monocot and a dicot seed.  Students will see the differences in size, color, and shape of the two different seed types.

Flower Anatomy

In this lab, students will dissect a flower to examine the male and female organs of the plant.  The students will gain a greater understanding of the pollination process with flowers and the environment.  Students then will research Georgia O’Keefe flowers and make a similar painting in her style.  This lab is great for cross-curricular studies with Art and Science!

Color Me Chromatography

In this lab, the student will learn how to set up a chromatograph and extract plant pigments.  They will discover the three different types of plant pigments: anthocyanins, carotenoids, and chlorophyll.
