Seeing is Believing

My students need 2 microscopes and a 100x objective.

I teach academically gifted students in grades K-5. This is a pull-out program with each grade level getting one day a week of advanced academic instruction. The same students may be in my class for up to six years.

We learn through an integrated thematic unit that changes each year. Students participate in many hands-on experiences.

Microscopes can be used with many thematic units including the study of animal life, inventions and archeology. We need simple to use microscopes so that even the youngest students can work with them easily.

You will make it possible for my students to get a close-up view and hands-on experiences with the topics we study.
