Week at Wilson
posted by: abeebe
I love when students are able to use the equipment provided by Notre Dame for even more than just the zebrafish. That happened this past week when I was able to work with Ms. Carol Govek and her 4th graders at Wilson. Ms. Govek had 3 different containers of “aquatic environments” in her classroom. One had lots of snails with water, one had water plants with water, and one had just “muck” with pond water. She used some of our petri dishes and set them up with the 3 different samples, and let the students observe these with the dissecting microscopes. How cool!! I spent some time observing these different petri dishes and had a blast! The snails, when observed with just the unaided eye, looked very plain. Place them under the microscope, and I couldn’t get enough-they were beautiful, and so interesting to observe!
Here are the students and their zebrafish.
