Do you or have you ever used microscope, slides, or diesections kits? If so what grade did you start in?
We haven't done that but want to so much.
I first used a microscope and participated in dissections in 10th grade in Biology. My 9th grade son will be doing biology next year, and we plan to do dissections and use a microscope then. I got our microscope from Sonlight, as well as my biology supplies. He will be using the Biology text from Christian Liberty Academy School System (CLASS), though. The microscope is of very good quality and I am very happy with it. It is better than the ones I used in college a few years back.
We got a microscope and premade slides over the summer last year. That was 7th grade, 5th grade and 2nd grade for us. It was fun and they liked making their own slides until the microscope got dropped and we haven't figured out how to put it back together yet. Haven't done any dissecting.
I am thinking of getting one i seen on ebay. I just didnt want to jump the gun because hes in 3rd grade. I know 3rd grade is diffrent now then when I was in school...
