Chloroplasts:

Question:

Does anyone know of a suitable water-plant for year 8s to be able to observe chloroplasts under the microscope?

Answer:

Use Valis (Vallisneria).
Just pop it on a microscope slide, give it a little squash with your thumb and view. You don’t even need a cover slip and no stain. Just make sure you use the thin bit from the tip.
