Learn all about the microscope with this fun coloring activity! I have found this to be an excellent way for students to learn the different parts of the microscope.

When students map a microscope, they assign colors and/or patterns to each part they need to identify. They fill in the key and the corresponding part.

This file includes two types of microscope maps:
1. a microscope with the twelve parts listed along the side
2. a microscope with arrows that allows the student to fill in the parts (this works well when parts have more than one name)

You can have your students use solid colors to differentiate between the parts or you can let them run wild and choose patterns and designs. Either way, this activity is great for referencing what they’ve learned. It works well in an interactive journal, and as a classroom and hallway bulletin board display.

If you have any questions or suggestions concerning this activity, please email me at ahousecalledhome@gmail.com.
