The children were lucky enough to experience looking through a microscope today. One of the parents in our class community, Hetal, is a scientist and she spared some time to teach us about a microscope. There are three parts to it; the head, the arm and the base. The head is the part of the microscope that has the lens which you look through. We all got to look through the microscope, and see how different a thin slice of ginger looks through it.
Some of us thought it looked like diamonds, others thought they saw a bumpy carpet. Millie was the scientist of the day asking many interesting questions about light and would water and oil look the same through a microscope.
