Jun 15, 2021 Life under a microscope By odb-abai inNews On the Day of Entertaining Facts, an amazing acquaintance with the microscope for children took place in the library. The guys learned how the microscope appeared, looked at the slides of the first samples with interest, compared their appearance with a modern microscope. Having got acquainted with the structure of the equipment, our regular readers and children from the Smiley summer camp conducted a series of experiments in which they examined different samples: water, salt, sugar, bird feathers, leaves, cotton wool, bandage, threads, hair. In a practical lesson, we were convinced that the microscope is used to obtain enlarged images of objects invisible to the naked eye. What did you manage to see through a microscope? Examining the slices of onions and leaves, the children saw that they consist of small different sections called cells. Black dots in the water – bacteria. When examining the sand, we saw large pieces of stones that looked like minerals. At the end of the cognitive lesson for the children, they reviewed the interesting books “All About the Microscope”.
