The Scientists Return!

Today I brought in my microscope.

 Our spellings this week concern the prefixes “pre”and “micro” and suffixes “en” and “ment”. The two spellings on the list that I brought in were microbe and microscope. However, I had no microbes to view so they were substituted by something called paramencium. Paramencium lookes like green, orange or red grains of rice with small ovals inside.

Also, some people looked at a strand of my hair. If you looked at it with one light setting, it looked like a brown rope on a strip of black paper. But if you looked at it with the other light setting it looked like an actual strand of hair lit from the top.

You were able to change the amount of light in the first setting of light I mentioned. Do you think this makes a difference to what you see? Why?
