This 30 page lapbook project pack is a fun way to introduce the basics of the microscope. Children learn about the inventor of the first microscope, various types of microscopes, and the parts of a compound microscope.
Hands-on projects include the study of popular items found around the house and comparing them to the electron microscope image of each item. Items to study include sugar, cake sprinkles, velcro, salt, pepper, the tongue, an ant, and more. The lessons are enhanced with beautiful full-color images and diagrams, followed by detailed instructions and templates for creating mini books for the lapbook.
