Make predictions on what you will see in the when looking in the microscope. Tell me what parts of the cell you think you will see and what parts you think you will not see.................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................

This online instruction blog should provide some great insights for your microscope lab. Make sure and look over everything closely and be prepared for class tommorow. Follow the link below:http://www.csun.edu/scied/7-microscopy/micro_tutorial/

Make sure and record all your data in your science notebooks. This includes all of your drawings and illustrations that you made. Failure to do so and you will lose points!

Use the following directions for when you are preparing your own slide:What to do:If the object you are viewing under the microscope is thick, you will need a sharp knife or razor blade to cut off a thin section (the thinner the slice, the easier it will be to view with your microscope). Place a drop of water in the center of the plain glass slide, using an eyedropper, or the clean tip of your finger. The drop of water should be bigger than your chosen object. Carefully set the specimen in the water drop. You may find a pair of tweezers helpful for this step.Take a cover slip and hold it at an angle to the slide so that one edge of it touches the water drop on the surface of the slide. Then, being careful not to move the specimen around, lower the cover slip without trapping any air bubbles beneath it.The water should form a seal around the object you want to view. Use the corner of a paper towel to blot up any excess water at the edges of the cover slip.To view the slide, begin with the lowest-power objective, then switch to a higher power objective to see more detail. If your slide is drying out too quickly, try putting a seal around the cover slip using petroleum jelly and a toothpick. The slide will not be permanent, but it will last longer.
