For science we are studying Biology this year, which is the study of living things, so we discussed what characteristics all living things have.
As part of this, I got some water from a pond nearby and we looked at the living things in the water through a microscope. I was SO happy because there were things MOVING in the water. I was not so happy because it took forever for everyone to take their turn looking in the microscope which made antsy and bored kids, so I'm not sure how much I'll use my microscope in the future.
We have some new members in our class this year! Including new kindergarteners! Fun fun!
