Exploring with the Digital Microscope
This morning we laid out all the flowers and plants we’d collected on the lighttable. With the help of some magnifying glasses and a powerful digital microscope we were able to observe and record the properties of the plants.
Jack: Please take picture. It’s the inside of the flower. Now is a good time to click.
Lochie: Wait when I say it’s done, it’s done.
Jack: Can you take a click? This is me I just took.
Lochie: This is so much photos!
Jack: Do you like those glowing things? Those are grapes and these flowers help the grapes grow. But you can’t eat them right now because they are not ready.
Jack: These are beads that make flowers. Can you see this up close?
Lochie: That is the one you want. Wow, whoa this clicker is going wild!
Violet: Can you take a click of the a leaf? I’m just looking.
George: This petal looks like pinkish blueish.
Jack: Are you ready for the picture?
CC: Yeah that looks rainbowish. Maybe that’s the inside of it? This one has sparkles!
George: Whoa, look at that!
Violet: This is my favorite
George: Hahaha it’s Violet’s finger!
Violet: He took a picture of my finger
Goerge: Do you want to take a picture of that?
Violet: Let’s do the rubber band again. That silly rubber band.
When children weren’t at the digital microscope they explored flower pressing techniques with Brigitte. Today we tried pressing them using a hammering method. This is something we will explore in further depth tomorrow!
Enjoy some images captured by the digital microscope today!
