We’re crazy for you, microscope!


We are really into our microscope lately. Fern got a little kit plus a set of extra slides for Christmas last year from her grandparents and she’s always been into it. Recently she’s been asking to look at it every day. She’s also been drawing the things she sees in a Field Notes notebook — a true victory.


She wants to show her friends her favorite slide (Dog Stomach) and is always looking at new things she finds around the house; paper, dandelions, hair, etc. She’s looked at grass, hydra, mushrooms, and even a sticker from Easter. I thought it was incredible to see the dots of color. I wasn’t expecting it and Fern totally didn’t get it at first. We looked up a little information on color theory but I’m interested in learning more so I can convey it better.
