Rosalind found a leach in her fish tank and brought it over for the kids to look at. She loves Biology and could tell the kids about it and answer all their questions. Rosalind thought this was a vegetarian leach but she wasn’t positive. Anja & Rosalind wanted to dissect it, so they could see what was inside it but all the other kids (especially Cassius) out voted them. It would have been much easier to see the parts of the leach if it was dead ,But Rosalind told the kids that you can often find things that are already dead if you want to get a better look.After looking at it under the microscope they all walked to the pond at Hastings Park and set it free. Then they picked grapes from the arbor in the Italian Park

The kids turned the microscope upside down and put the plate on top of it to get this picture.
