Microslide™ Lesson Sets for Science and Health Education

Microslide™ lessons are unique, proven teaching aids used by over 150 million students. The set offers versatility and low cost for use in a classroom laboratory, media or resource center, at home, or by a substitute teacher.

microslice1. MICROSLIDE® VIEWER

it’s not a microscope. It is a tool for viewing Microslides® without electricity or special lighting. It’s simple to operate (just insert the slide and focus), versatile, washable, and unconditionally guaranteed against breakage for five years.

2. MICROSLIDE®

a set of 8 or more related 35 mm images as photographed through a microscope. Arrows and letters on the picture help the student locate important features to be studied. The film is mounted in a clear acetate holder which protects it on both sides. Microslides® cannot be easily scratched or broken. Microslides® provide your student with the opportunity to examine microscopic materials that they might otherwise not be able to observe.

3. MICROSLIDE® LESSON SETS

text/lesson folders accompany each Microslide® to form a complete student lesson set. Each folder contains factual information to stimulate, inform, and question the student about the topic under study. Each text folder has a handy pocket in which the Microslide® may be stored.

4. STUDENT WORKSHEETS

are designed for inexpensive reproduction by you. All boxes of Microslide® Lesson Sets are provided with one copy of a corresponding worksheet. Printed on 81⁄2" x 11" white bond paper, the sheets contain questions designed to reinforce the student’s understanding of the Microslide® Lesson Set material, and indicate the student’s mastery of the subject. An answer sheet is supplied with each worksheet.

5. Classroom UNITS

of identical sets are packed in sturdy, labeled boxes for shelf or desk storage.
