Microslide® products are an integrated system. From the viewer to the slides themselves, we have everything needed for classroom success.
A specially designed instrument for viewing Microslide® sets -- simply insert slide and focus. The viewer brings 5X magnification allowing every image to be seen exactly as if observed through a microscope under ideal conditions. The white reflector provides sufficient light for a bright image in the normal light of a classroom. The viewer does not require electricity or batteries so it can also be used outdoors. 9" high. Unconditionally guaranteed against breakage for 1 year. For budding scientists of all ages!
The worksheets contain questions designed to reinforce student’s understanding of the lesson material and indicate mastery of the subject. Reproducible Student Worksheets are included FREE OF CHARGE in all boxes of Microslide® sets and Astroslide Lesson Sets.
