Developments of the teaching material and the teaching tool Structure and Performance of the handmade Microscope
Muko, Heiwa
In the present study, five types of handmade microscopes were developed for the basic tool of the biology class. They were the paste lens type, the glass bead type, the marble-magnifier type, the loupe-loupe type and the paper craft type. Most of the materials of these microscopes were able to obtain from the Do-it-yourself stores or the miscellaneous daily goods stores. The processes of making microscopes are effective teaching materials for understanding about structure and function of the light microscopes.
