During Block Days this week in Life Science, students will be introduced to the microscope and use it to observe different types of microbes. Before students start looking at slides, they have to understand the different parts of the microscope and the function of each part. Next, students will rotate around the room using different microscopes to observe different microbes, which are organisms too small for your eye to see. Then students will describe the size, shape, and color of the microbe and they will draw what they see. Finally, students will be quizzed on the different parts of microscope.
