Scientific Lesson Concepts

How to use the microscope lab teaches students how to use the microscope safely. Another great lab experiment is for students to graph their data table results. A metric system activity teaches students how to convert using SI measurements. Laboratory equipment worksheets and exam / test / quiz questions also provide help with evaluating the student's progress.
