Historical biology or biological history?

microscope by staceyjoy on flickr

This week we’ll be looking at the development of the cell theory.  You will need to research the contribution made by each of the following scientists, find a picture of the person or what they made or saw, then use the information to construct a timeline.  Put all that into a presentation of some kind  [prezi / dipity /anything else appropriate].  Your presentation should also include the main points of the cell theory.  Enter the url of your work as a link in a comment on this post.

1.      Hans and Zacharias Janssen

2.      Robert Hooke

3.      Anton Leeuwenhoek

4.      Matthias Schleiden

5.      Theodor Schwann

6.      Rudolf Virchow

7.      August Weismann

Can you label the parts of the microscope on this drawing? Parts-of-a-microscope
