Product Description
Stomata are tiny openings in the leaves of plants that allow gases to enter and exit the leaf. Two procedures are presented in this resource. One is a very interesting procedure that uses clear nail polish to prepare a microscopic slide where students can view the epidermis of the leaf and see the guard cells and stomata. The other procedure demonstrates the effect on the leaf itself when the stomata is clogged. Stomata are located on the underside of leaves, but you don’t have to tell your students this. Run the activity in an inquiry fashion: which side of a plant leaf are the stomata located?

This resource also contains quality document camera images and notes to help you teach about the stomata. A blank template for students to draw their microscopic diagrams is included, as is an observational chart for the clogging experiment.
