This DVD has four main sections with 13 chapter points and was meant to be used with Microscope World's super slide kit.
Part 1 (12 min) - How to use a microscope and prepared slides. We show you everything you need to know for getting the most out of your microscope.
Part 2 (15 min) - Investigating Cells, five engaging demonstrations of observations that you can do with plant and animal cells.
Part 3 (22 min) - Observing Prepared Specimens. Here we spend time showing you what to look for when using the 10 prepared slides in the Super Slide Kit (there are 10 individual chapter points on the DVD for easy access).
Part 4 (15 min.) - Investigating Pond Water. This section is awesome! 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 find these same organisms in lakes, streams, aquariums and even an old rain puddle.
