Wonderful prepared slides- great for elementary teachers or homeschoolers,
This review is from: Celestron No.44410 Prepared Microscope Slides (25-Piece Set) (Camera)
My mom got these slides along with the duo-scope for my daughter about a year ago. She has loved looking at all the different structures which are easily visible with the stains used. I am a scientist myself and have been helping her 4th grade teacher with science each week. These slides have been wonderful to demonstrate many of the topics we have covered. There are both longitudinal and cross sections of plants which nicely demonstrate tubules in plant stems, there is one of pollen. All of these have helped the topics "come alive" to students as they can actually see in the microscope what we are talking about, not just a picture in a book. Human body is covered in 5th grade and I'm sure I'll be using these next year to assist in teaching that as well. If you are a teacher or homeschooling parent you may want to consider these for your class!

It would have been great if these slides came iwth a book of some sort of explanation of what structures you are looking at. Many people buy these with the beginner microscope. So shouldn't there be some sort of booklet or index cards or age 8-12 yr old books available to accompany these glass slides? It'd be nice to be able to describe exactly what to look for when you are viewing these slides. Do you have any suggestions on what books or index cards or kids books to buy to help explain what to look for when viewing each slide?
