Great for getting started Review by
I got this set at the recommendation of our biology tutor. It has many basics for getting started in the microscope portion of biology. It had the added benefit of getting the kids excited about biology and wanting to learn more. Even after lessons were over they were asking to look at and study more.
Perfect size set for elementary and basic biology Review by
Bought these to use with my 3rd and 5th grader. Nice set. Will be perfect to use again in future science classes. It comes nicely and neatly packaged in a plastic box, perfect and important for storing for later use.
Excellent Review by
This was a great set of slides. Decent variety and all slides were clearly visible. I was really impressed by being able to see individual cells within the blood smear at 400x magnification.
Lots of fun Review by
My teenage daughter and I have had a great time studying the prepared slides. She has fine artistic skills, and enjoys sketching some of the mounted specimens. The experience is a nostalgic trip to high school biology for me. Although it would be helpful to have labelled diagrams for more detailed study, this information is easily enough obtained from an online search.
Good bio slide set, but missing fungi Review by
Overall, a very good survey of biology topics in the slide set, professionally stained so you can identify what you are seeing. There are no representatives of fungi, which surprised me because there was at least one slide for every other major topic in my biology textbook. I will order an extra slide or two before my next kid starts bio.
