This is a quick lab that used a newspaper clipping containing the letter "e" for beginners to use and focus a compound microscope. Students use the learn to make a wet mount slide, use the microscope powers and make observations in this simple lab. It did take about 50 minutes for my beginning biology students to conduct the lab, make drawings and describe their observations. A nice way to introduce the microscope.
