Microscopy Journaling


My 8th grade students use a very simple Keynote journal template that I created for their microscopy experiences in my class. They capture images with their iPad through the eyepiece.


Title slide for journal with one completed slide showing microscope view of a house fly.

I’m wondering if anyone does something similar and wants to share their templates, ideas, workflow.

I am attaching a student sample for what we do in @lacrossescience

Cool idea - journaling via microscopy!

Hi Leah! Do you have a specific type of microscope you use that interfaces well with iPad? Thank you for sharing in the Forum!

Hi Kyle!

I actually have such a mix of microscopes that students use. Some are so old school, they are from the 80's! I probably used them in school. Ha! I have one really good microscope that I received with a grant. It is a Motic BA310E. Very expensive, but awesome for viewing plankton!
