When we has some 5th graders in the lab.  I put together a 20 minute talk on cells and tissues, it was very basic.  For some reason I can't seem to locate it but if I do I'll share it.  They then spent time in the lab, they printed their own cassette and embedded a slim jim, they got to watch someone section, we let them pick up the sections on the waterbath and they got to stain an H&E and iron stain.  We divided them up into groups of 10 and they rotated through three modules, - 1 - the lecture 2- processing, embedding and sectioning and 3 - staining.    NSH has some nice flyers that you can give to them and they also have a video on being a histotech.  We asked vendors for goodies and then put together a bag that had a bunch of stuff in it for each of the students, we do this every year for both the 5th graders and then a summer class of Juniors and Seniors from Frontiers of Science it's a program at Northern Colorado University.

Go to the Mich. Assoc. Of Lab. Sci. Educators (MALSE) website (program directors of MT, MLT, HT, HTL, PA, CT programs in Michigan put this together).

On the left, lots of information to choose from
Click on "Links", and it should take you to "Diagnostic Detectives"
Click on "Diagnostic Detectives CD" on lower right, then click on "Click here to launch"
Opens to a general CD of laboratory
Can click on middle bottom for Anatomic Pathology Labs
Opens to CD on Anat Path
On left, can click on more CD for histology, cytology, PA
Then on the left of each of these, there are panels with information about high school preparation, education training, and career ladders and certification
Across the top of Diagnostic Detectives is "other" careers - vet, forensic, supervisor, etc.
While on Diagnostic Detectives, check out Resources of Teachers on the left, and click on "Diagnostic Detective Toolkit", first bullet in white area. Check out Teachers Tools or Students Tools. also check out "Other Resources", and try "histology world".

Good Luck

Does anyone have materials or ideas for a 20 minute presention of Histology to 4th and 5th graders?  Last year we gave a short talk followed by examination of microscopic slides with microscopes.  Gloves and labcoats were given to them, too!
