Details: Everyone knows that plant or animal cells look really cool when viewed through a microscope. Slides mounted with parts of crab legs or a flower stem are often featured in classroom science lessons. But did you ever wonder how ordinary things look when viewed up-close and personal, such as ink on paper or a piece of hair? No need to keep wondering---this set of slides features samples of items you and we see everyday. The set includes 1 slide specimen each of samples of tobacco, cork, human hair (both straight and curly), 3 color dyed fibers, and a paper letter "e". It also comes with a guide of interesting facts about each of the specimens. This is a great science resource for any classroom, and is a wonderful way to show the unique cell structure and makeup of seemingly commonplace items. An awesome home-schooling resource, this set can be used with any compound microscope you have at home or at school. A great scientific educational gift for the aspiring young scientist in your family!
