Lauren, who is in tenth grade, has enjoyed her biology experience. This is a huge relief to me. I admit that I have been more than a little nervous about high school science.
I thought I’d share a few photos of my “little” scientist at work for our loved ones far away. Be warned, one photo is a graphic image of an earthworm dissection. Scroll at your own risk!
We purchased a microscope for her Apologia Biology course. Lauren has enjoyed using it. I have to say that one reason I love homeschooling is that I get to have all kinds of new experiences. I had never touched a microscope before this, (as I think I’ve mentioned previously) so this has been fun for all of us.
She got a lab coat to protect her clothing during experiments; she got the mask because she is sensitive to the smell of formaldehyde. The gloves are to protect her skin from the chemicals. Doesn’t she look adorable? (Don’t tell her I said that!)

It was a bit disgusting. But we are learning, and that’s what it’s all about. Thanks for reading. I hope you all have a happy weekend.

That had to be a memorable experience for Lauren and the rest of her observers. She is not only learning a great deal, she is giving her siblings an exciting view of science. I’m sure they are eager for their turn in the lab.
Glad she is doing so well!! Biology is a difficult subject. We live on a creek and dissected a water snake. Talk about disgusting! It is fun watching our kids learn, there is nothing better.
She looks adorable. I liked Biology too! She will never forget these memories.
