What is a dissecting microscope?
Dissecting microscope can be used for science dissection projects. A dissecting microscope enables the magnification and inspection of three-dimensional objects, rather than samples prepared on slides. It facilitates and provides the ability for students to get up close and personal with organisms that are otherwise not visible to the naked eye.
As you can imagine, with the introduction of a new piece of equipment so many new opportunities present themselves in the form of classroom activities. Your biology students will be rushing into each class to get as much value out of using the dissecting microscope as possible. Dissectiong microscope allows you to view a live image on your computer screen or on the included tablet while dissecting your specimen.
When lesson planning, consider incorporating some of the following activities;
– Dissecting frog embryos.
– Looking at seed dispersion of strawberries and dandelions.
– Looking at the sponge as an example of classification of an invertebrate.
– Looking at pollen and exploring the process of bees.
– Comparison crystal formations – ionic and polar.
– Looking at plant structures and exploring photosynthesis.
Each of these activities are perfectly suited for high school and middle school students.
