How to use a microscope (BrainPOP)

1. Complete the activity (click the attached link) 2. Type a NOTE about your conclusion and what you learned about microscopes "Depending on how it's made, a lens can make objects appear bigger or smaller. Light microscopes magnify small objects with a combination of convex lenses, which curve outwards, and concave lenses, which curve inwards. It all starts with a light source. Light is either projected directly through the lens, or bounced from a mirror mounted underneath the microscope's stage. The stage is a platform with a small hole in it. Light comes through the hole and passes through a thin slice of the specimen you want to magnify. The specimen is mounted on a slide, which is a rectangular piece of glass or plastic. After passing through the specimen, the light hits a series of objective lenses, which form an enlarged image of the specimen." https://www.brainpop.com/technology/scienceandindustry/microscopes/transcript/
