From Ponds to Bacteria
While looking for frog eggs at the neighborhood pond/park, Teacher Hannah discussed that there was bacteria in the water. "What is bacteria??" Upon hearing this question from one student a few times, our curriculum shifted focus from Ponds to Bacteria and Germs.
We grew our own bacteria in petri dishes and began to explore the microscopic world with our new Microscope!
We chose to rub the carpet, bottom of shoes, someone's mouth, our high school student, our indoor kitty Saphira, and all of our hands.
This is after a couple weeks of growth!
