This is 2nd in a series of labs by pAllen Science used to teach the microscope. Students are guided through the steps of calculating microscope magnification for 3 objective lenses. They will then use the different magnifications to observe cells on prepared slides. Analysis and conclusion allows them to compare utility of different magnifications and similarities in cells. HOTS questioning. Good resource for programmed instruction and can be used with ESL and SWD populations.
Suggested slides: at least one animal, one plant and one protist. Offer student choice of other 2 remaining slides.
