Today we were reading a beginning science book about big and small creatures and things. It showed a picture of human skin under a microscope. The girls were both so fascinated that I knew it was time to pull out the kids' microscope kit Daniel and I had bought on sale at Walmart last year sometime (I think).
Once we figured out how to adjust it, we looked at carpet fuzz, fingernails, hair, and some prepared slides of parts of plants. They each drew a picture and wrote what they saw when looking at a piece of a fern. It was a fun day in science at our house!
