What's happening in Sirius

Recently in team sirius science we have been learning about cells. We learned about what's in cells, what things are made of cells, and we've looked at cells through microscopes. We have made many diagrams of plant cells and animal cells. We labeled and drew details and wrote the steps of what cells do.  I really enjoyed looking through the microscope. We got to look at many pre made slides such as, bone tissue, liver, antennas, and so much more. We also got to make some of our own slides like saliva, some plant and onion skin, and pond water. We used blue staining dye to enhance our view of the slides. Although the dye kills the cells so you cannot see them moving if you dye it. It is also cool that if you stick a camera lens or phone lens slightly in the microscope you can take pictures of it. There are some pictures down below. Everything living is made of cells.

In Humanities we played a game called race to the white house. It's similar to monoply. You get money and go around the board. Here are some pictures.
