… microorganism! (laughing) What better way to wrap up our official learning year than with some microscope fun? We’ve studied the microscope BEFORE, but this go ’round we thought we’d try a few new tricks.
Our PSP has several microscopes which are available for use. To my surprise, and pleasure, they often go unused. This means we get our pick of the lot, with no due date! For the second year in a row, we are borrowing one of these high-end tools and making the most of our time.
Last year saw us going through a multitude of prepared slides which were available for our use. There were several sets of handy-dandy slides, making the study of the human body and plant life that much easier.
This year, we are taking things up a notch and borrowing a slide making kit. We have a good supply of slides, slide covers, and several dyes; all of which will be put to good use.
We are very much looking forward to several weeks of discovery and experimentation. This is going to be so much fun!
Should you be in the market for a microscope, you might consider Microscope.com for purchase. They seem to be fairly reasonable and have several versions to choose from. If you would prefer to rent, you might try Microscopes and More. Just looking for some fun microscope ideas or helps? Head over to A2Z Homeschooling; there is a wealth of information ready to be used.
Seasoned, experienced scientists… which slide would you recommend we make first?
