Extra Parts for Discovering Insects for 3 or more children

Discovering Insects - Extra Parts

Recommendations for 3 children 

Discovering Insects is intended for two children working together, but we have found it works pretty well with 3 children, too.

For 3 children working at the same time, add: 


    forceps 

    magnifying lens

Recommendations for using these kits with larger groups.

Once you have one of our kits, you may find it's so much fun you'll want to use some of the lessons with more children.
