[Channel-talklife] LS Session 2

Some life forms will be easier to introduce to the class than others. Plants and animals that are visible to the naked eye will be easily recognized and students will be able to share backgound knowledge of these groups. Fungi, such as mushrooms, may be difficult to differentiate from plants when simply examined visually. Mold could be grown on a slice of bread. Yeast could be activated with sugar and water. Then students will have a variety of samples to examine. Protists could be examined by collecting pond water samples, making slides with the samples, and studying them under a microscope. Perhaps this could be done with samples from fungi, plants, and animals, too. Using the microscope may allow students to discover similarities and differences among the groups mentioned above. These are ideas I have not yet tried and am curious to test.
