Aim of the experiment The aim of the experiment was to make a microscope slide of an onion skin, look at it at different magnifications and draw what we saw. We needed to identify the cell walls, nucleus and the cytoplasm. Peter Loader @ TLT 2 of 8

Safety To be safe we wore goggles and were very careful how we used the scalpel. Because the glass could have broken we were very careful how we held it. Peter Loader @ TLT 3 of 8

We cut open an onion and took a piece of very thin skin. We placed this onto the middle of a microscope slide. Then we put a thin piece of glass called a cover slip on top of the onion skin and gently pressed it flat. After that we put the slide under a microscope with the lens set at low magnification.
