  Microscope Activities, Kits, and Posters
Students of all ages enjoy exploring microscopic worlds. This section contains an array of books, kits, posters and reference guides aimed at capitalizing on the feeling of discovery that accompanies delving into "small worlds."
  Microscopes (Compound, Stereo, Digital and Prism)
As is the case with binoculars, there are many different brands of microscopes - some offering good value, others that really should be categorized as toys. The scopes we offer are the result of trying a number of different brands and choosing quality scopes that possess key technical features and good value. We also have prism microscopes that use natural lighting as well as versatile digital microscopes. Also see our prepared microscope slide collections as well as our selection of activity books and supplies.
  Individual Prepared Microscope Slides
Featured below are 47 of the most popular slides used in life science classes. Simply select those that pertain to your lesson or interests, and if needed, order a slide storage box (see selection on this page), and you have your own custom set! Each slide is labeled, and is of the same high quality as those in the prepared slide sets (25, 100 slide sets). $4.40 each. MIX OR MATCH 10 (Prepared Slides), $3.96 each.
  Sets of Prepared Microscope Slides
High quality microscope slides in sets containing the most common slides used in life science classes.
  Slides, Coverslips, Slide Boxes, Petri Dishes
This section features microscope slides, well slides, slide storage boxes, coverslips, petri dishes and pipettes.
  Microslide Viewing Systems and Lesson Sets
This popular system utilizes photomicrographs along with informative instructional materials and reproducible student activity sheets that introduce students to a wide range of subjects. Components can be individually tailored to fit specific needs. Since the prepared slides are photomicrographs, they do not require any special preparation.
