Problem: What does a cheek cell look like?

Hypothesis: A group of cells that look like a brick wall with a possibility to see something moving.

Materials:
* Microscope
* Tweezers
* Syringe
* Wet mounts(Slides and slide covers)
* Toothpicks
* Onion(Onion cell)
* Methylene blue stain water
* Water
* Cheek skin(Cheek cell)

Procedure:
Onion Cell
1. Create a wet mount(using water, a syringe, slides and slide covers of course) 2. Use tweezers to get onion skin from the onion
3. Place onion skin in wet mount
4. Put mount under the scope and view the cell

For using methylene blue stain water just do same procedure as the one above except use the methylene blue stain water instead of regular water when creating a mount.

Cheek Cell
1. Create a wet mount(using water, a syringe, slides and slide covers of course) 2. Use toothpick to scrap your cheek until you get some skin(careful not to hurt yourself) 3. Place cheek skin in wet mount

4. Put mount under the scope and view the cell

For using methylene blue stain water just do same procedure as the one above except use the methylene blue stain water instead of regular water when creating a mount.

Data/Observations:
I was unable to do this part because I don’t know how to get graphs and stuff on office. And even if I did I wouldn’t know what to do because I didn’t listen in the pond lab report.

Analysis: The similarities are that they are both cells and both have air bubbles and stuff. The differences is that one has lifeforms while the other doesn’t.

Conclusion:
1) My hypothesis was right it did look like a brick wall with small things moving. 2) I learned how to recognize cells of different types.
3) A test on this to see if we know our cell parts.
4) I am not sure of this question but I am thinking about it. 5) I don’t have any questions at the moment but will very soon.
