First graders went to the STEAMworks lab to see what soil, sand, rocks, fossils and shells look like under the microscopes. These digital microscopes were purchased with our grant money and the kids LOVE them. They can also take them off the stand and of course they had to look at things like their fingerprints, clothing, hair, and keyboards. They can't wait to come back when they are studying plants to see what those look like up close and personal!
We'll use these pictures next week when we write about our observations in a digital drawing package, Pixie.
My name is Anne Jarriel and I oversee the SteamWorks lab at Gullett Elementary. I'm blogging about what I see and lead in the STEAM lab which is mostly kids just having a great time!
