7th Grade Science
“We are not alone” 7th graders have been learning about the microscopic organisms that outnumber us by the trillions on planet Earth. First, we scurried the middle school for bacteria and learned that they help more than they harm. Then we moved onto protists the “odds and ends” kingdom Using the microscopes the 7th grades prepared slides of the fascinating unicellular amebas, parameciums and euglenas and became better acquainted with our very close microbial neighbors. – Bette Gordon- 7th Science Instructor
