Using Microscopes

Students do an experiment using a microscope. In this activity, about cells, students examine different slides using a microscope. Students look at an onion skin, cheek cells, and potato cells. In each of these, students find cell walls, cell membranes, chloroplasts, nucleus, and cytoplasm in each of the items. Students develop an understanding of cells and learn how to use a microscope.
