Not many people have microscopes, let alone own ‘quality’ microscopes. I think this deters people from teaching mitosis (how cells divide). Mitosis can be an exciting topic; it is something great to teach and useful for your learners to learn/retain. A good thing to know is that having a quality microscope is not the only option in teaching mitosis. Use these options to help you teach mitosis to your homeschool differently and in ways they are more likely to retain what they have learned.
