This is a microscope lab formated for Next Generation Science Standards Claim, Evidence and Reasoning labs. The lab is set up so that students can explore microscopes independently with the teacher being the facillitator. In this lab, the claim (formally hypothesis) has been filled in for the student. They must come up with the evidence and reasoning.
The only instruction that should be given by the teacher is how to handle a microscope. The functions of the microscope should be learned by letting the students explore the microscope.
