Today students learned the parts of a basic compound microscope. They also took notes on the rules of using microscopes in our class. The remaining time was given for students to memorize the parts. There will be a small quiz tomorrow on the parts of the microscope. Students must pass with an 80 percent or above to be allowed to use the microscopes. If they do not pass I will give out a crossword for them to do during the activity and they can retake the quiz.
