Using a microscope is a skill unto itself.  Students are required to know the parts of the microscope and their functions, how to carry the 'scope properly, and how to use it before they will be allowed to actually use the microscope.  (Check out the attached PowerPoint presentations to review this info.)

One of the high school students saw me preparing the microscope quiz for the 8th graders, and she told me that what I had taught her in using the 'scopes really helped her out when she had to use them again in high school Biology.
