The fifth grade class I am in is currently learning about the microsystem. They already learned about the microscope and all of its parts  in class. They are now moving onto micro-organisms and looking at them under the microscopes. While looking up micro-organisms I came across a website that is an interactive way for students to learn about micro-organisms. The website is called Children’s University and it explains all about micro-organisms and even has a fun matching game to play at the end. All of 5th grade students at Millstone River have chromebooks, so this makes it easy for students to explore on their own and learn at their own pace. There is an introduction to micro-organisms as well as examples of them that students can look through with games to play at the end.This is a good tool for a fifth grade science introduction lesson.
