Catching Up!

It has been ages since I last posted, and my goodness have done we a lot since February.  Here is a little zoom through the last couple of months....

Separating the thin layer of skin from the onion to make a wet-mount slide!

The wet-mount onion skin slide. 

Using our new digital microscope to see the cells from the onion skin. 

Learning about measuring and graphing by collecting data about how far we can jump.

The recycling bins are finally done, but we seem to have discarded some very important things!

Finishing up our inter-island book groups with a video conference with Isle Au Haut, Monhegan, Cliff and Matinicus islands!

A special visit from our fire chief, Richard Howland and the Islesford Fire Department Organizer, Katelyn Damon!  Thanks for the great hats and the lessons about how to stay safe in a fire!

The year has flown right by, and we've had so much fun!
