The Brock Microscope is NOT Only a Science Tool!
Review star icon Review star icon Review star icon Review star icon Review star icon May 28, 2014
Having a Brock Microscope in the classroom can be detrimental to learning! Often, I have to re-direct my second grade students away from the microscope when teaching lessons other than those pertaining to science. One student placed his personal narrative draft under the scope to see what his words looked like magnified. The ease of using it, and its sturdiness, makes it an invaluable tool in the elementary classroom!

Fantastic Microscope!
Review star icon Review star icon Review star icon Review star icon Review star icon May 25, 2012
We are so thrilled we bought this microscope for our 9 year old son! He spent more time with it than any of the toys he got for Christmas. We have taken it to the beach because it is so light weight, and easy to transport in the bag you can buy with it. We have used it for Cub Scouts and all the boys loved it. It's so easy to use, even the youngest child can enjoy finding items to examine. It's actually hard to get the kids to stop bringing items to show each other. We had to promise to do it again at another meeting!

Fantastic Mulit-Use Microscope

I love the Brock magiscopes! They are easy for little ones to use and still useful for older students. I also love that you can take the scope out of the stand and view objects that would not otherwise be accessible with a standard compound microscope.

NGSS

This product will support your students' understanding of the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS)*, as shown in the table below.

Elementary Middle School High School

1-PS4-2

Students can use the Brock Microscope to make observations to construct an evidence-based account that objects can be seen only when illuminated.

2-PS1-1

Students can use the Brock Microscope in an investigation to describe and classify different kinds of materials by their observable properties.

2-LS2-1

Students can use the Brock Microscope in an investigation to determine if plants need sunlight and water to grow.

2-LS4-1

Students can use the Brock Microscope to make observations of plants and animals to compare diversity of life in different habitats.

K-2-ETS1-3

Students can use the Brock Microscope in an investigation to develop a simple sketch, drawing, or physical model to illustrate how the shape of an object helps it function as needed to solve a given problem.

4-PS4-1

Students can use the Brock Microscope in an investigation to develop a model to describe that light reflecting from objects and entering the eye allows objects to be seen.

4-LS1-1

Students can use the Brock Microscope to make observations in an investigation to construct an argument that plants and animals have internal and external structures that function to support survival, growth, behavior, and reproduction.

4-ESS4-1

Students can use the Brock Microscope to make observations and/or measurements to provide evidence of the effects of weathering or the rate of erosion my water, ice, wind, or vegetation.

5-PS1-1

Students can use the Brock Microscope in an investigation to develop a model to describe that matter is made of particles too small to be seen.

MS-PS4-2

Students can the Brock Microscope to develop and use a model to describe that waves are reflected, absorbed, or transmitted through various materials.

MS-LS1-1

Students can the Brock Microscope to make observations in an investigation to provide evidence that living things are made of cells, either one cell or many different number and types of cells.

MS-LS1-2

Students can the Brock Microscope to make observations in an investigation to develop and use a model to describe the function of a cell as a whole and ways parts of cells contribute to the function.

MS-LS1-3

Students can the Brock Microscope to make observations to present an argument supported by evidence for how the body is a system of interacting subsystems composed of groups of cells.

MS-LS1-6

Students can the Brock Microscope to make observations to construct a scientific explanation based on evidence for the role of photosynthesis in the cycling of matter and flow of energy into and out of organisms.

MS-ESS2-2

Students can the Brock Microscope to make observations, analyze and interpret samples and data on the distribution of fossils and rocks, continental shapes, and seafloor structures to provide evidence of the past plate motions.

HS-LS1-2

Students can the Brock Microscope to make observations and develop and or use a model to illustrate the hierarchical organization of interacting systems that provide specific functions within multicellular organizations.

HS-LS1-5

Students can the Brock Microscope to make observations and develop a model to illustrate how photosynthesis transforms light energy into stored chemical energy.

HS-LS2-3

Students can the Brock Microscope to make observations, construct and revise an explanation based on evidence for the cycling of matter and flow of energy in aerobic and anaerobic conditions.

HS-ESS2-1

Students can the Brock Microscope to make observations and develop a model to illustrate how Earth's internal and surface processes operate at different spatial and temporal scales to form continental and ocean-floor features.

Suggested Science Idea(s)

All Levels

Students can use the Brock Microscope with 20 times magnification to look closely at important organic and inorganic structures that the unaided eye cannot see. Students can better understand samples they find out in the field or prepared slides. Very sturdy, easy to use and appropriate for classroom lab work for students of all ages. Accessory lenses are available for greater magnification (40X & 10X objectives and 10 X eyepiece).

Take students out of the classroom and into the field for genuine learning opportunities in Biology, Earth Science, or Environmental Science. Collect water samples and look for invertebrates, compare and contrast leaf and root cells, find pollen and see the spiky structures, or collect sand, dirt or rock samples and identify crystal formations for more accurate identification.

Students can use the Hand-Held Field Microscope for a physical science investigation to understand how light waves move through objects (lenses) and to allow for magnification. Accessory lenses are available for greater magnification and comparison (40X & 10X objectives and 10 X eyepiece). This provides an optimal hands-on learning opportunity for students to investigate power of magnification concepts.
