Big & Fun Microscope by Thames & Kosmos

Availability: In stock

A big, colorful microscope that’s perfect for early biological exploration!

Designed specifically for kids with 8x magnification power for comfortable viewing. Features an extra-wide eyepiece and a battery-powered, light-up slide stage that makes viewing images through the microscope easy.

The microscope comes with a unique slide holder, 24 printed slides and one blank slide. Each printed slide features one object at three magnification levels, so kids can relate a recognizable object, like a feather or bee, with two different magnified images of the object.

The 72 slide images give kids a lot of things to investigate. The 32-page, full-color manual is set up as an illustrated storybook, making it fun for adults and children to read together, while also instructing them how to use the microscope. As you read the story, you can find the slides of the objects that appear in the story and view them through the microscope. The blank slide can be used to view other objects at 8x magnification.

This introductory series of lessons is designed to give kids an effective and fun introduction to microscopy and microscopic biology. The manual explains the parts of the microscope, how to use it, and gives scientific explanations of the images on the printed slides.
