MicroPro 48 pc Microscope Set Educational Insights Review and Giveaway

Hi Neighbors!

A little hot here today At the Fence, so we are putting off volleyball until a little later this evening. We are hoping to get a light out there so we can play after dark, when it is cooler. I just keep thinking fall!


Anyway on to this new product! I love this one! Especially for science class! Be sure my home-schooling neighbors to pay attention to this one. It is a MicroPro 48 piece Microscope Set ($39.99). It is recommended for ages 8+ or 3rd grade up. There are sharp edges for cutting on the scalpel, so keep this away from young children. Once again from Educational Insights!



The set contains:
1-Die-cast Metal Microscope
1-10X Eyepiece
1-20X Eyepiece
1-Scalpel
1-Spatula
1-Stirring Rod
1-Tweezers
1-Test Tube with Cap
1-Petri Dish
1-Pipette
3-Specimen Vials
3-Prepared Slides
8-Blank Slides
8-Slide Labels
16-Slide Covers
And an Instruction and Activity Guide.



What home-schooling mom couldn't use one of these. Or perhaps your child has an interest in science experiments and study. My 10 year old has already asked if she personally can have this one. And then again maybe your child could use this for a science project this year. There are many uses for a microscope like this.



The MicroPro microscope is very well made. You do need 2 AA batteries for the light in the base. The microscope comes with a rotating 3 lens turret design with 50x, 100x, 150x, 300x, and 600x magnifications. There is a rotating mirror/viewing light. It tilts for easy viewing and has a wide stable base. Using this microscope your child can investigate pond water, view salt crystals, look at butterfly wings, etc. The Instruction /Activity Guide will teach them proper care and use of the microscope, along with giving suggestions for experiments. Each Project has an area for recording notes.

Educational Insights has done it again in choosing a quality product to make available through their website. I am slowly building up more of my home-school games, activities, and products through Educational Insights. If you have never visited their website you need to take some time to browse through what they have available. It is definitely worth your time.

One neighbor will win a MicroPro Microscope set in this giveaway!
