Microscopes for Schools
Magnifying Microscopes for Schools
The Magnifying Microscope is a small hand-held unit that allows a child to easily move it around to view items indoors or out. An activity booklet has been produced by the Water Corporation, in conjunction with STAWA, so that teachers are able to integrate the use of the Magnifying Microscopes with their existing curriculum.
The Water Corporation provide four copies of the Magnifying Microscopes activities booklet and hands-on help for the science teacher in the school. The activities focus on the use of microscopes, plant adaptations to water supply, plant structure and soil composition, and include teacher background notes.
