Year 10 Leaf Tissue Studies

Practical Science lessons are already in full swing at Braeside. In a Year 10 lesson, Amaarah took a photo of her light microscope image of a cross section of a leaf, magnification x 100.

The pointer identifies the Palisade mesophyll layer and the spongy mesophyll is clear underneath with plenty of air spaces for the efficient diffusion of gases into and out of the leaf.

Pupils found the lesson very interesting, and the practical approached helped with furthering their understanding of the topic.
