Investigating Snowflakes

It's snowing large, clumpy snowflakes today, so we decided to do an impromptu science lesson and pulled out our little digital handheld microscope.  

We weren't able to spot the 6 pointed stars very clearly with the microscope, because our microscope only magnifies 10x-50x.  We did capture a couple flakes with the camera's macro lens though. 

We plan on saving up so we can buy a proper microscope that will allow us to view snowflakes like these!
