Part 2 (15 min.) Investigating Cells: Five engaging demonstrations of observations that you can do with plant and animal cells.

Part 4 (15 min.) Investigating Pond Water: This section is a lot of fun! You will see many microscopic critters found in pond water. See protozoans splitting and watch the food chain in action! With your microscope, you can then find these same organisms in lakes, streams, aquariums or even in a rain puddle!
