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.

Brine Shrimp–Artemia Salina

In this lab, the student will investigate how the hatching rate of brine shrimp is affected by temperature and salinity.

Bewitching Biofilms

In this lab, students will discover what biofilms are, where are they located on their body, and to view bacteria growth.

Acid Rain

In this lab, students will use seedlings to see the effect of acid on plant growth.

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!
