Product Description
This lab focuses on compound and dissection microscope skills and preparing a wet mount. Students will complete wet mounts of an "e" to practice slide orientation and movement under the microscope, thread to practice depth of field, and pond organisms to see live and moving specimens under the microscope. Students will also observe plant and animal cells under prepared slides. Students will use problem solving skills and inquiry to determine how to trouble-shoot microscope issues and discover properties of the microscope, such as the inverted image.

You will be purchasing the fully accessible word document, so you may alter the lab for use in your own classroom. However, I retain the rights to the lab, as it is part of a lab book that is in the process of publication.

Supplies needed (can be varied by what is available):
Compound and dissecting microscopes, ruler, thread of at least 2 contrasting colors, glass slides and cover slips, water in dropper bottles or beakers with pipettes, prepared slides (animal tissues and plant leaf tissue are the best), pond water with microorganisms (affordable dry samples can be purchased through biological supply vendors and take about a week or 2 of soaking in water to prepare).
