We are trying something new with science. With our microscope the kids are inspired to explore bugs, pond water, fish scales, hair, foods and more. The first time we got it out my son couldn't wait to look at his hair. Following the book The Ultimate Guide to Your Microscope by Shar Levine is helping us learn the basics of how to use the mircoscope and create different types of slides by doing actual activities.

I'm going to encourage the kids to get the microscope out at least once per week. How do you use your microscope?

  1. Ooh, I had a microscope growing up and loved it. I liked looking at dragonfly wings. I've thought about getting one for my kids, it would be a great addition to our homeschool but had totally forgotten about it. Officially adding it to the list and I'm going to check out that book too!

  2. I am going to have to check out that book! We love our microscope but it's not always easy preparing slides.
