Here's a sample of what 8th graders finished learning before winter break. We used compound microscopes and digital microscopes to discover whether all lving things are indeed made of cells. We tried to find evidence that the things we found were living things by seeing if they had all the characteristics of living things that we came up with together.

These are pictures of Paramecium they are swimming around in water this is evidence that they are living! Me and my class had a vial full of them and we used an microscope and studied them watching them move also watching them eat! What my teacher Mr. Gonzalez did was die the yeast that they eat red and put it with the Paramecium. To see if they ate the yeast we looked to see if they had red on them. There was a problem that some of the water absorbed the red die so it was kind of red but if we looked good enough we saw that they did eat some! Watch this video and see for yourself(I'm sorry the video taker i used speeds it up so pause or slow the video down if you want).



Paramecium!
