Biology Week 2022: Two Brand New Activities for Kids
To celebrate Biology Week 2022, we have created two brand new activities for kids:
This worksheet presents an affordable and easy way to make a simple microscope using water. It is a great resource to learn about how microscopes work, why they are important to biologists, and how they uncover the microworld around us. As part of the activity, children can also learn more about the parts of flowers and their role in making seeds containing the new baby plant.
To discuss some of the biological processes involved in the carbon cycle, we put together this crossword puzzle. The diagram and clues tell the students a story and aim to help them understand the complexity of the cycle and the consequences when unbalanced. A fun way to start the conversation about what climate change is and its impacts on nature.
