We’ve been keeping a careful eye on our science experiments and mould is growing nicely in many of the petri dishes. We’re going to let the experiment run for another week and then write up the results and conclusions.
In the meantime, we’ll learn about bacteria and viruses and other sorts of microorganism. And on Tuesday afternoon, we’ll be working with Josey Scullard to make (sew) our own microorganism cuddly toys from different materials. Cuddly salmonella, basically!
Below, as inspiration, a couple of images of the stunning world of microscopic organisms. If you have any materials at home that you think we might be able to use, please send them in on Monday. Thanks!
