In science we've been doing all sorts of crazy science-y stuff and learning about cells. If you ask me there weren't really any "down sides" the whole unit was just awesome! We got to do a bunch of cool labs involving microscopes and I even saw a 100% real, Grade A, genuine amoeba. Also I learned about a cell's innards. At first I knew very little about them. Heck. For while I didn't even know about the organelles.
