Product Description
This kit is a fun way to teach the students the names of the different parts of the microscope ‎and the steps of using it.‎

Many students do not know how to describe correctly how to set and use the light ‎microscope.‎

I noticed this while marking one of the questions in the IB DP biology exam as most of the ‎students got only part of the mark if any.‎
This is why I decided to prepare this kit for my students and other students as well.‎


The kit includes:‎
• Group work activity.‎
• A booklet for the students.‎
• A bulletin board which is to be assembled by the students following the teacher’s ‎instructions and then to be displayed in the class or the lab.‎
• Answer key for the worksheet.‎
• Instructions for the teacher.‎

Instructions for the teacher:‎
Print the following:‎
• Few copies of the powerpoint “assemble”, one copy for each group.‎
• One copy for each student of the “student booklet”‎
• One copy of the colored power point “steps”‎
• One copy of the “microscope image B & W “‎
For the group work:‎
For the copy of each group of the “assemble” powerpoint, cut the table in the to separate the names of the ‎microscope parts from their functions. Also separate the sentences that describe the setting up and the use of the ‎microscope from each other.‎
Ask the students to:‎
‎1.‎ Use the image of the microscope and guess the name of each part.‎
‎2.‎ Check the right answer with all the groups before allowing them to go to the next step.‎
‎3.‎ Ask them to guess the function of each part and put the strip of paper next to the name.‎
‎4.‎ Check the answers before going to the next step. ‎
‎5.‎ Now ask them to arrange in order the steps of setting up and using the microscope.‎
‎6.‎ Do the same as before and check if their answers are correct before going to the next stage of the work ‎which is the individual one.‎

For the student work:‎
Give a copy of the booklet to each student and ask them to answer the questions in the booklet based on what ‎they did in the group work.‎
When the whole class is done, it is time for bingo.‎
Describe the function of the one part of the microscope and let them guess it and cross it out in their grids. ‎Repeat till someone “bingos”‎

For the bulletin board:‎
Some of the students will finish faster and wait for the bingo, while the others will still be working. Ask the fast ‎finishers to prepare the bulletin board. ‎
Let them stich the image of the microscope in the middle, and the colored ones that describe how to use it all ‎around in the proper order. Of course on the wall.‎
