Science Up Close

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!

Oh, what a fun day y'all had. A microscope is on my list of things I must buy and soon! :)

Congrats on joining the church band! I'm sure it will be a great year and wonderful experience for you.
