Biology Cell Lab
What are the differences between the structures and sizes of plant and animal cells?
The microscope was set up and the elodea leaf was picked off using tweezers and placed on a slide. A drop of water was added to the slide and a glass cover was dropped at a 45 degrees angle. The slide was examined under the microscope starting at the low objective lens then the medium objective lens and lastly the high power objective lens. The diagram of the elodea was drawn and the measurements were written down. Next, the human cheek cell slide was prepared. A drop of water was added to the slide and saliva scraped from the side of the cheek using a wooden stick was dabbed onto the drop of water. Then a drop of methylene blue was added to the mixture and a slipcover was placed on top of the specimen.
