As a school, we are working towards achieving the Silver PSQM (Primary Science Quality Mark) award. Miss Varley came in the classroom with a large blue box on wheels and this made us very excited. We had no idea what was going to be inside.
When we opened the box, we found that there were a set of microscopes for us to use.
- What is a microscope?
- What do we use them for?
- How do we use them?
We talked about how to use them carefully, making sure that our fingers weren’t covering the lens. We looked at how to move the lens up and down to be able to see the tiny details on objects.
