Learning about Microscopes
Walkthrough (2.7 MB)
The Learning about Microscopes module provides an easy to use method of demonstrating and reviewing the use of microscopes and making up specimen slides in the school laboratory. The objective is achieved in six interactive activities starting with building and using a microscope, making up a microscope slide, recording observations, a 'quiz' and a final Microscope Crossword Puzzle.
The Learning about Microscopes module has two versions, one prepared for individual pupil use, and the other for teacher instructional use on Interactive Whiteboards. Both versions have the same learning sequence and graphics so they directly correlate with each other.
