Explore worlds too small for the naked eye. Learn how a microscope works while investigating plants, animals, fungi and protozoa, as well as crystals and crystal formation.

Comes with 20 activities in 13 lessons, a parent guide, an easy-to-use pocket microscope, and everything you need to do the lessons except an onion and a slice of bread.

Extra pocket microscopes are available. The microscope is so much fun to use, and gives such a sharp image, you may want more than one.

Student-tested at School Works Learning Center, these lessons were some of the most popular we've ever done.
