Believe What They See

The cost of a microscope, a plants slide kit, a vegetables slide kit, and a set of 18 blank slides from Lakeshore Learning is $197, including shipping and <a target="new" href="http://www.donorschoose.org/html/fulfillment.htm" onclick="g_openWindow('http://www.donorschoose.org/html/fulfillment.htm', 300, 800, 'fulfillwindow');return false;">fulfillment</a>.

My 20 third graders mostly come from low-income homes that have not had the opportunities that other children have had. I would like to have a microscope in the classroom so that each student will be able to explore and learn through observation and make comparisons of various materials. This is an extremely useful tool for each student to use to gather information that otherwise would not be available to them. They can then analyze it and gain knowledge from their own hands-on experience about the world they live in. The microscope will be used by all my students throughout the school year as they become better scientists.
