Small Things and Microscopes, Second Edition

Students discover that magnification not only makes objects appear larger but also brings details into view that the unaided eye cannot see. After observing patterns in crystals and the vital variety of plant and animal cells, students draw important conclusions about living and non-living things. They study the tiny world of one-celled protists, and grow and observe colonies of bacteria. In the process, students enlarge their repertoire of scientific skills, learning to focus a magnifier, adjust a microscope, make a wet mount, and stain a slide. (13 Activities)
