I've been fussing over the homeschool room again. Someone gifted us a set of drawers, and my sister brought my Grandfather's old Persian rug down, and well, it was time to fuss a little. Sometimes things can get a little stale, right?
One thing I do to freshen up spaces is to leave different things out on view occasionally. Shake it up.
This time, a microscope station with various tools to make their own 'slides' and a sheet to concentrate activity. So far we have a couple insect wings and a dissected flower. Interest comes and goes, but mostly everything looks more interesting down the barrel of a microscope.
And for your own use, here is the very simple Microscope Worksheet I drew up for them both to use. Feel free to use in your own home too (it looks better downloaded into Word than it does on the screen).
