Toy Microscopes For Fun & Learning

Educational Insights Nancy B’S Science Club Microscope And Activity Journal

Learning about the world around them is important for kids. And what better way to learn than with a little microscope of their own. They can gather leaves, twigs, bugs, etc. and look at them with their own microscope. They’ll have fun. They’ll be fascinated. And they’ll learn about how all of the little things in the world fit together and how they work. A toy like this can not only entertain a child but also help them improve their grades in school and their understanding of the world.

The microscope pictured to the left is great for kids who are around 8 to 11 years old. It’s a 40 piece set that includes everything they’ll need to get started with their love of science. The microscope magnifies things from 30x to 400x so they can see all kinds of details. It comes with an activity journal that offers lots of suggestions as to what kids might look at with their microscope. There are also lots of places for taking notes and doing drawings of the microscopic world they’ll discover.

Here are a few other pictures of what comes with the microscope above:
