This is a lab intended to get your students introduced to the microscope. It is structured in such a way as to show them how to use the microscope while looking at a prepared slide. The second page has a drawing of a labeled microscope to help them understand the new words. My high school students love the microscope and your students will too. Get those dusty microscopes out of the cupboards and use them! I have included a "teacher notes" page with explanations for you.
