As part of that grade's life science curriculum, Brooke Landry’s students and their lab partners observed and defined the internal organs and structures of their earthworms.
They used a trinocular compound LED microscope to view specimens up close.
While the lab was going on, students from the lower grades visited to observe and the seventh-graders explained the steps they were taking during the dissection.
The students will later illustrate what they have learned through a written science lab report.
