Dollar Store Science

I am sure that this won't be the last time that I mention my love for the Dollar Store...or the dollar bins at Target.
With that said, I want to share with you... my "latest" Dollar Store find.

It was a 3 pack set of magnifying glasses.
(FYI:the smallest things excite me.)

Only a dollar...but priceless when you think about the learning that can take place.

Take a closer look...

Yesterday,my son swore that there was a bug in the floor.


Me: No buddy,it is not a bug.


Me: It does look like a bug..but it is coffee,remember we played with coffee and you made a mess?


Me: Here, I will show you. This is a magnifying glass it helps us see things that are small. Let us look again and see if that was a bug on the floor.


There you go!

He used a Scientific Tool to discover the coffee grounds...and a spider web.(I dusted right after.) :)

We talked about big and small too.
All of this, from a dollar store find.

Extention: *Take the investigation outside!
