For students to understand their world they often need to use tools to gather information. Some tools will help them see parts of their surrounding world that they would otherwise miss. These tools include magnifying glasses and microscopes. The lesson can be conducted as a learning center or as a teacher-led whole class instruction. These can be used along with other activities discussed in the book Microscopes and Magnifying Lenses by Janice VanCleave.
