4. Examine a microscopic section of small intestine wall using low-power magnification. Identify the mucosa, submucosa, muscular layer, and serosa. Note the villi that extend into the lumen of the tube. Study a single villus using high-power magnification. Note the core of connective tissue and the covering of simple columnar epithelium that contains some lightly stained goblet cells (fig. 49.11). What is the function of these villi?_

5. Examine a microscopic section of large intestine wall. Note the lack of villi. Also note the tubular mucous glands that open on the surface of the
