4. Microscope Images/Field of View and Magnification
10/3

Introduction to the Microscope-2
1. Science Journal: what happens to the orientation of  images under the microscope- what do you do if you need to find an organism on the right, left,  towards the top of the slide, etc.

2. Prepare a wet mount and view images under the microscope to understand the orientation of objects

3. Draw scale representations of images seen under a microscope to estimate size accurately
