Microscope Introduction - Plant and Animal Cell Comparison - PowerPoint and Handouts.

Students will learn the parts of a compound light microscope and how to use it during labs. They will also compare plant and animal cell organelles.

Once students have learned how to operate a microscope, they will view various cell slides and discover first-hand how animal and plant cells are alike and different from one another. PowerPoint includes embedded slide specimen photographs for teachers who lack the necessary lab equipment for this activity.

Included in this lesson:

* Exploration into Microscope Usage handouts

* Plant and Animal Cell Comparison Lab

* 19 PowerPoint slides to take you through the parts of the microscope (not included in the free version) AND slides for the animal vs. plant cell lab for review or if you don't have microscopes or appropriate slides for student use.

• DIGITAL GOOGLE CLASSROOM links to all items listed above which can be easily converted to Microsoft School with directions provided or altered to fit your school’s personal learning management system
