Product Details

Discover the realm of photosynthetic algae and increase student microscopy skills with this kit. Students compare and contrast living and preserved species from the groups Chrysophyta, Euglenophyta and Chlorophyta and investigate characteristics of both multicellular and colonial algae. The laboratory begins with a thorough inspection of prepared microscope slides. After examining the internal and external features of the preserved specimens, students observe living samples of the same organisms to study their behavior as well. A great introduction to a pond or marine water classification lab! Kit includes prepared slides and materials for 30 students working in pairs.

Compound microscopes and live cultures are required and available separately.
