    The Microslide Viewer is an alternative to a microscope. It looks a lot like a microscope, but instead of viewing your own slides or prepared slides, it uses low-power magnification to allow you to view Microslides. A Microslide consists of eight 35mm images photographed from a microscope. Because they are actual photographs, they are much clearer than a normal slide's image. The microslides are stored in clear plastic holders for protection, and arrows call attention to the important features of the image. The strip fits right in the viewer so that you can pull it through to view all eight pictures. As you can see from the list below, plenty of Microslides are available. You can use it inside or outside, as it doesn't require batteries or electricity. Normal classroom light reflects off the white reflector to enable you to see the images clearly. This is a much cheaper alternative to a microscope and slides, without sacrificing image quality. Microslides come in a folder-like card which features information about each slide and includes a holder for the slide itself. A helpful amount of information is normally included for each slide image, including the name of the image, the magnification of the image, background information and points of interest. It's especially helpful when points of interest are labeled with letters, which are repeated on the slide, to make it easy to locate them. It's like getting a guided tour!  Although designed for the Microslide viewer, these slides can also be viewed on a standard microscope, with some adjustment. ~ Stephanie

    If you crossed a common, ordinary pocket microscope with a Swiss Army knife, you just might end up with the X-Scope. Truly the "Cadillac" of magnification tools, this handy little pocket-size 30x microscope also includes an 8x pull-out telescope, a 9x magnifying hand lens, a clock, a whistle, a compass and a flashlight! Ok, if you aren't bedazzled with all those extra features, you will definitely be impressed with the quality of magnification and the bright, sharp viewing provided by the LED bulb. Just flip the light switch, place the object you want to observe underneath, and look through the lens on the top. Compared to other pocket microscopes in our office, this one allowed us to see all those Asian beetles in our office in much more detail! Jess

    If you're not up for making your own set of Petri dishes and agar using little paper cups and a gelatin nutrient base for your microbiology experiments, this is an easier route - professional-looking too! Set includes 3 sterile plastic Petri dishes and one bag of nutrient agar with instructions for preparation. Now you can do that experiment where you "sample" surfaces like your kitchen counters and or your hands, streak the Petri dish, and wait to see what grows! - Jess

    Travel with Ms. Frizzle and her class through the land of microscopy with this lab kit. This kit includes the things that young researchers need to explore the world of tiny things – microscope, blank slides, cover slips, tweezers, collecting vial, 20 colorful experiment and instruction cards, prepared slides of fungi and algae, and a data notebook for recording your own scientific observations all packaged in a cool Magic School Bus-shaped box. The microscope operates on 2 AA batteries (not included) and is made of plastic with 100, 300 and 600x magnification. Although that sounds powerful, this is still a toy and doesn't give the quality and clarity of higher priced microscopes. I spent some time looking at the prepared slides and had some difficulty with the viewing on 600x but got a pretty good view with the 100 and 300x settings. Overall this is a good starter set for beginning to explore with Ms. Frizzle. - Donna

    If you're looking for a good starter set for dissection, this may be the one. This set includes a 10" x 6" sturdy, plastic tray; a fitted, reusable pad; scissors; a probe; forceps; and a teacher guide. A cover that fits over the tray will help you keep your set together. This size of tray and pad is the perfect size for smaller specimens such as an earthworm, frog, clam, or grasshopper. You'll notice this kit doesn't include a scalpel, as it is assumed you have access to one. Instruments are sharp, and students should use caution in working with them. Won't it be fun working with your student when they dissect for the first time? ~ Donna

      This scope combines the convenience of using a smart phone with the fun of building a model. First you build the scope with the materials included in the kit (screwdriver included), then switch on the light, open the camera app on your smart phone and place it on top of the viewer, place your object on the plastic slide (1.5” x 2”), place the slide in the box-shaped SmartScope viewer, and use the dials to bring the object into focus to view the object on the screen on your phone! This makes objects easier to view than looking through the tiny opening of a microscope or hand-held viewer. Study drops of water, insects, and anything else that will fit on the slide. The included poster (22.5” x 33”) highlights some interesting suggestions for things to view both indoors and out, and the guide offers more information for each of those specimens – these are some easily accessible objects that will start your child with the world of microscopy. ~ Donna

    If your family is like mine - captivated by the real science behind the plethora of television crime shows, then this book may be perfect for you. This resource brings the scientific study of crime scenes into the home and school arena. While the labs are designed for groups, you can easily do these as a family (or in a co-op) if you are willing to invest the time to set the crime scene stage.

    Divided into 4 sections, each covers a different branch of science. The first section, Critical Thinking, lays the foundational principles of science and reinforces observation skills (handwriting and typewriting comparisons,) experimentation (shoe impressions) and logical thinking. Physical Science employs techniques such as analysis of unknown mixtures, fibers and fingerprinting. In the Life Science section, students concentrate on evidence left at crime sciences by living things and study the principles of inheritance, DNA, blood typing, dental identification, and forensic etymology. The final section, Earth Science, offers lessons on mummification, skeletal evidence, and archaeological evidence. All in all, this supplemental resource book offers 68 lessons and labs (most lessons have one accompanying lab, some have two) designed to bring a fresh enthusiasm on the importance of "whys" of learning science. Household items and additional lab equipment required (microscope, glass slides and cover slips, test tubes, pH paper, beakers, filter paper, Plaster of Paris, and various chemicals. Information to order an Edvotek DNA Kit is included for the DNA labs).

    A brief personal note, I used the previous edition of this book with my teens and they still talk about the science they learned. Real life science learned and remembered makes for one happy homeschool mom! We performed the majority of activities in the book, making changes to the readily available supplies, some of the experiments we discussed and did not perform due to the difficulty of obtaining materials. Noteworthy:while the mock crimes are presented in a discerning manner, they do represent a wide variety of fact- based crimes. As a family, you may elect to skip over some of the lessons within the pages. Reproducible for classroom use. sc ~Deanne

    These cover slips are just like their glass counterparts, but made of flexible, unbreakable plastic. Glass cover slips are notoriously fragile and difficult to handle, especially for younger students. Plastic cover slips allow students to learn to make slides without fear of getting cut on sharp edges.

    These unbreakable slides are made of durable, flexible plastic, which makes them a bit safer for younger science students. Each slide measures 1"x 3" and can be used just like glass slides.

    Concave slides are perfect for viewing living organisms. The single depression in the center of the 1"x 3" glass slide measures .5mm to .8 mm in depth, which allows for viewing without damaging or squashing the organism. They don't dry out as quickly as a regular slide because you are able to include more liquid with your specimen. The slides have rounded edges and are reusable.
