Kit 2: Hands-on Science Fun! Microscopic Explorations, Insects and Light
Microscopic Explorations Learn how a microscope works while investigating everything around you, including plants, animals, fungi, protozoa, and more. You even get to watch crystals forming! Comes with an easy-to-use quality pocket microscope and projects to lead you through 14 fascinating lessons. Several children can easily learn at the same time, but I do recommend purchasing an extra pocket microscope or two, as it is such a nifty tool and my children spent a lot of time waiting their turn while their brother or sister "oohed" and "aahed" over what they were discovering with their eye to the microscope. This kit is marvelous!

The Wonders of Light From mirrors to rainbows, polarization to phosphorescence, this excellent kit will take your children through an adventure in discovering the wonders of light. 16 lessons and materials enough for several children to share.
Discovering Insects has the scoop on bugs without the yuck! Plastic models, bug-eye viewer, and other goodies allow kids to study insects and arachnids indoors, as well as in their natural environment (which would be indoors at my house!). You don't have to touch any bugs if you don't want to. (I'm with you, Mom.) Enough equipment for several children to share in these 12 interesting insect lessons.
