This DIFFERENTIATED lab activity is a great chance for students to make a slide, practice microscope skills, and learn and reinforce other science content such as leaf structure, stomata, and homeostasis. Included are two versions of a leaf structure lab. One version is a more traditional lab, and the other is open-ended, or inquiry-based, and longer, allowing students to design their own experiment.
Both versions allow for hands-on examination, as well as reading and diagramming of the parts of a leaf, and understanding how the stomata help the leaf conduct photosynthesis and maintain homeostasis. In the second version, there is also an opportunity for students to design and conduct their own experiments related to stomata.
This product also includes suggested classroom uses, additional links, etc.
Materials needed (in addition to the leaf):
- clear nail polish
- clear tape
- blank slide
After completing this activity, students will understand how stomata function and be able to identify the parts of a leaf.
