This document guides students through the observation of a prepared onion root slide in order to view the stages of Mitosis. It includes a few reminders about the use of a microscope and images of what the students should see if the scope is focused properly. As a result, this is most appropriate for beginning or less experienced users of the microscope. I use this with my freshman Biology students but not with more advanced students or users of the microscope. The document includes questions and space for students to draw their observations.
The assignment is a word document and can be edited as needed.
