In a recent lab, eigth graders observed several specimens under a microscope, noting characteristics that would indicate if they were living, non-living or dead. Examples included if the specimen was breathing, had DNA, or required water. The eighth grade science program is a yearlong, microscopic to macroscopic exploration of the science of the human body. The boys begin by learning how cells use DNA to build structures and carry out the functions of life.
