The Microscopic World!

We are so lucky to live where we do--- we can bike to so many neat places!  We are just starting to study God's animal kingdom creations in science class.  As an overview of Creation, we talked briefly about the Universere (macro), our Earth and then the microscopic world that exists beneath our fingertips.  In order to get an idea of what that microscopic world looks like, we took a field trip to collect a water sample from "Blackbird Pond".
 There's a non-microscopic organism that lives in water...... Justin was excited to find a snail shell.
 Trudging back up the hill to our bikes was a bit muddy, but worth it--
 To bring home THIS!
 We made some predictions and then prepared a few slides.  It was really fun to try and 'catch' the living organisms in the viewfinder and watch them swim around.

We did some observational drawings and discovered that there is a whole other WORLD that lives in a drop of water!  God cares for each little creature in that drop of world as much as He cares for us--- and in the scale of the Universe we look like those little microscopic creatures!  It's pretty mind-boggling to think of the beautiful complexity of His Creation.
