“Yay, Yay we are going to see cells,” I said. 9:00 sharp I said finally time to go to the LAB! When we arrived we all sat around the tables while Mr.Barakat introduced himself. After that, he told us to take a cotton bud and rub around in circles on the inside of our cheeks. Then we were supposed to rub it on a slide and drop of methylene blue, then put a cover slide on top and look at it under a microscope. After that we didn’t only want to see an animal cell (as we are considered animals) we wanted to see plant cells.
Mr. Barakat chopped a piece of an onion and with some tweezers he grabbed a tissue of cells, he cut a tiny piece of it and rubbed it on a slide, then dropped a drop of iodine which was brown and placed a cover slide on top. We observed the cells we all did. I learned a lot it was a nice experience for me and I think for everyone else.
It was a great experience, and I’ll never ever forget what I’ve learned on that day.
