We love using microscopes in Year 2!

Happy New Year! Welcome back 2B.

Did you know that the word microscope comes from two Greek words – micro meaning small and scope meaning to look or see?

We had lots of fun observing different everyday materials in Science. Using a microscope and hand lens, children observed materials close up. They looked at materials including coffee granules, rice crispies, pieces of carpet, metal, fabric, wood, bread and fake snow. They recorded their findings carefully. Children were surprised when they looked closely at some of the items, especially the coffee granules.
