Today is my first time joining in Dewey’s Showcase, where we share some of the tools we use. I have to say, one of the tools we love using is our pocket microscope. It really seems to be the perfect microscope for young children because it is portable and can be used like a ‘telescope’, which is a much easier position for little ones to learn.
We have used this to explore in the house and outside, as it removes from it’s little stand easily. Have you every seen looked at the dirt in your yard? What about the cat’s fur – while it is still attached to the cat? Looking at our world close up is something my children all have fun doing, no matter how old or young they are.
If you want to find one of these pocket microscopes you can get them here for only $13.95. Ours has lived through several children and years.
Be sure to blog about one of the tools you use and link up to Dewey’s Showcase!
