Dear LOR user,

Thank you for being a big part of this community. To better support the initiatives around open educational resources in the state of Michigan, all resources on the Michigan Virtual Learning Object Repository (LOR) are being moved to #GoOpen Michigan (link is external) on September 30th, 2018. During the transition, our LOR will be moved to an archived state, not allowing new user registration or new content to be added. An email with more details was sent to registered users of the LOR in September. To make use of the great resources on the platform, we encourage you to create an account and add your own new resources to the #GoOpen Michigan platform (link is external).



This is a simple blended learning plan for introducing the microscope and cells. It is also the beginning lesson in a unit that will ultimately lead to with students synthesizing their own cell theory which they will compare with the currently accepted Cell Theory.

Learning Targets: 
Identify and describe the the way various types of microscopes work and how to use them.
Observe and describe basic parts of the cell through drawing, labeling and discussion
Develop a simple cell theory based on observations of cells and prior knowledge.
