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.

I believe that Paramecia are single celled organisms that can live on their own without having to be attached to something to survive or get life support off of another living organism. Paramecia are very cool! They are very interesting to look at under the microscope because you can see right through them, they look like very little stretched out ovals. The Paramecia move by using their hair like arms to move through their environment. When my group put red food dye in the tray that held them you could watch the Paramecia eat it so it turned the inside of the Paramecia red. The liquid was red to be able to tell if the Paramecia could eat on their own. This is what I've learned so far about Paramecia.

when we looked at our minipond it looked really scummy we added a leaf to it wich was really cool to look at. when we took a wet mound of pond substance and looked at it under the microscope, sadly i could not find anything but hopefully i will have another chance to but from what other people had it looked really interesting.
