See a whole new world! So many things are invisible to the naked eye, but under a microscope they spring to life. These hands-on science experiments show kids how to glimpse this magical, microscopic universe. Microscope basics cover microtomes, wet mounts, and smear and squash slides. Then take a close-up look at animal bone marrow, cartilage, and fur; the icky slime on your teeth in the morning; pollen and grass; stinging nettles; and many other objects. You'll get a "bright idea" for examining a burnt-out light bulb, do a "flaky experiment" with a snow crystal, and make "a good impression" by creating a surface print of a flower petal or leaf. Learn how forensic scientists use microscopes to help solve crimes. The dozens of wondrous photographs and funny drawings, along with intriguing science fair suggestions, encourage children to embark on their own microscopic explorations. 80 pages (all in color), 8 1/2 x 10.
