It’s Friday, April 6, 2018, and time for a Virtual Field Trip at ClickSchooling!

 

Recommended Website:

The Micropolitan Museum

(www.microscopy-uk.org.uk/micropolitan/index.html)

Age Range: All (All grades; children with parental supervision)

 

Take a unique virtual field trip into the world of micro-organisms with this site from the Micscape Magazine.

The curator of the online museum, Wim van Egmond, “has collected the finest microscopic masterpieces nature has ever produced.”

When arriving at today’s link, select from the four collections to begin your tours: 

  • The Freshwater Collection
  • The Marine Collection
  • The Insectarium
  • The Botanical Garden

When the collection page opens, click on the thumbnail images on the left to choose an exhibit, then choose the micro-organism to see amazing pictures and learn about the organism. Use your back button or the icons on the bottom of the page to navigate through the different collections. It takes a little work to navigate around but it is well worth it to see the artistic beauty of these life forms. 

Before leaving the site, click the home icon in the upper menu, then locate the “Questions and Answers” text link to find “tutorials for microscopists, beginners, and articles on how to get the best out of a microscope.” 

This website would be a wonderful addition for your science studies, so bookmark this page as new images are being added regularly.
