Virtual Labs: Using the Microscope

This website is extremely useful for 5th grade students to learn about microscopes. This group includes a virtual “game like” lab where students can interact with a microscope. Students can learn about the parts and how those parts on a microscope works. The virtual lab even teaches students how to use oil immersion on the microscope. I like how the site also speaks on the results of the sample that is viewed in the demonstration. The “game” finishes off with how to clean up the equipment and concludes the experiment. I believe this virtual lab is a great pre-demonstration for students so they can learn how to use the magnifying glass. You can find the link here.
