The American Educational T-302-30B photomicrograph rocks and rock-forming minerals lesson set is used for geological study, and has 30 lesson plans for hands-on learning. Each lesson plan has a photomicrograph slide that displays eight related 35mm images photographed through a microscope for detailed examination, and includes arrows and call outs for identifying pertinent features. The following magnified minerals are depicted on the slide: sedimentary-red sandstone (50X), sedimentary-shell limestone (50X), igneous-basalt (50X and x.n. 50X), igneous-granite/ordinary light (50X and x.n. 50X), igneous-pyroxenite (50X), metamorphic-mica schist (15X), metamorphic-mica schist-x.n. (50X), and metamorphic-dolomitic marble-x.n. (50X). The T-302-30B has a teacher’s guide and reproducible student worksheets for instructional use. The lesson plan is printed on heavy card stock for durability, and has a pocket for storing the slide, which is mounted in a clear, plastic holder for protection. The set is suitable for all grades and ages 5 to 18. Science education products are commonly used as educational aids in scientific classrooms and office settings.
Science education products incorporate applied math and science principles into classroom and homeschool-based projects. Teachers in pre-K, elementary, and secondary classrooms use science education kits and products alongside science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) curriculum to demonstrate STEM concepts and real-world applications through hands-on activities. Science education projects include a broad range of activities, such as practical experiments in engineering, aeronautics, robotics, energy, chemistry, physics, biology, and geology.
