Can you imagine 21 little six year olds squealing in delight watching meal worms eating oatmeal! That's what it was like the other day in my first grade classroom as each child had on their desk a rock and a meal worm, observing the differences between living and non-living things. As we waited patiently for 2 magnifying glasses to be passed around the room, I thought, "wouldn't it be wonderful to have a class set of magnifying glasses for assisting us to truly have ample time to observe and learn during science time and for our museum (our science center)." It would be great to use to explore outside, allowing each to be their own science detective. My wish, a set of 24 magnifying glasses, can be made possible by you. Thank you for considering this!
