This is a picture captured from the Ken-A-Vision digital microscope that I use in my classroom. The image is from a prepared slide of Paramecium aurelia, which has been stained purple. The paramecium has been magnified 400X. Pertinent structures are labeled.
The beauty of this image, as well as the others I've uploaded, is that it shows what students will see when looking through their own compound light microscopes. Rather than trying to connect an edited, color-corrected, (super) high definition image from the internet to what students are seeing in their own scopes, you can give them a far more usable, relatable, teachable image to work with and learn from.
