One the cool opportunities we have in 6th grade science, is the ability to study live specimens. One such specimen is Limbriculus. A blackworm that lives in aquatic ecosystems. Students learn how to handle and observe characteristics about their specimen from which they will make inferences about organism structure and function.

Here is a video of our specimens!

The Moon! #coolscience

Taken with an old Tasco Telescope and iPad Mini. One of the great things about our mobile devices is they give us the ability to see and share things in new ways. Using the camera of the iPad mini, my wife and I were able to capture this clear image of the moon last night in our backyard. You could use your mobile device to do the same with a stereoscope or microscope! Try it out!
