What we have learned in Biology so far

What we have learned and done in biology is that we looked at onion cells and cheek cells under the microscope. When we did this activity we also reviewed all of the facts that we learned at the beginning of the year. We also reviewed microscope parts and how to safely use microscopes without hurting the equipment.
 
Another thing that we did in biology is a compelling question and debate about whether or not humans should live forever. We had watched part of a video about how scientists are making human organs that can live on their own. The video showed a heart pumping on it's own, and a pair of lungs that were breathing without a body.

We also did another activity called "Are You Ready to Save the world". This was a worksheet. In this worksheet we designed our own species, what they do, how they live, and where our species lives. We filled out that information on the front of the paper. On the back of the paper we drew our species of aliens doing all of the things that we described on the front of the paper. For example if our aliens haves spines we drew spines, or if they ate tacos we showed them eating tacos.

That is what we have done so far in biology. Thank you for reading this post. Please comment on this post.

  3. This was a very interesting to read about! I really liked the making our own alien species. What was your favorite thing about the biology unit?

  4. If you had to created a different species, or even environment, what planet would you choose to do it on? I think this could bring a lot of talk about living on mars. If you had the chance to live on mars, Would you?

  5. My favorite thing that we have learned in biology so far is our cell-mini lessons. I don't know which planet I would choose to have my alien species to live on. If I had the chance to live on Mars I would not. I like living on Earth to much. Would you like to live on Mars?

  6. Good job Spartan Blog Squad! Sounds like you are doing a lot of fun work in science. I've never looked at an onion under a microscope. I bet it looks better than it smells. Did your group come to a conclusion about whether humans should live forever or not? That's an interesting question. Keep up the good work

  7. Well we each did that project individually so in our group there would probably be several different answers. It is a very interesting question though. Do you think that humans should live forever?

  8. We have not come to an answer for should humans live forever. We all have our own opinions.
