Can you imagine being a student and being told what you should be looking for and hearing the teacher sound like the teacher from the Peanuts cartoon? All the student hears is "wha-wha-wha" and "blah-blah-blah!" On the other hand, can you imagine what it is like being a teacher who passionately wants the children to look at the world through scientific eyes and see the hidden wonders in an item too small to hold in the palm of their hand? I am a 5th grade science teacher of 75-80 students at a rural school whose resources are limited. The students need to have access to laboratory resources that will enable them to see things beyond the naked eye! I would love to have a digital microscope that will allow all 70+ students the ability to see what I see and the ability for me to show the students what can be seen through the wonders of technology. The first 9 weeks we cover life science, which incorporates xylem and phloem as well as microscopic organisms. Our school has only 6 microscopes to service Pre-k through 6th grade. Having these microscopes does not allow me to point out to the students what they should be looking at. I would utilize a digital microscope not only in teaching about plants and small organisms but as well as in earth science showing mineral and rock samples that cannot be passed around so easily. Please help me to help my students SEE beyond the slide and SEE into the future! I want my students to have the experience of seeing things through my eyes and for them to know that they have identified objects with hands-on experience and that they can now identify those objects on a piece of paper as well as educate someone else about the world around them.
