Magnifying and Observing Cells

In this activity, students will learn that all organisms are composed of cells, the building blocks of life. Almost all cells are microscopic and must be magnified to be observed. Students will make wet mount slides of small pieces of onion skin and Elodea leaf (water weed) to observe and compare.
