Microscopes add depth to science studies, particularly when students are completing high school biology. Of course, you'll want to allow students to use a real microscope in their science studies. But, knowing the parts of a microscope is also important. Because a microscope is usually one of the more expensive school investments, it's important that students know how to use and care for it. These printables can help you teach your students the basic parts of a microscope.
