I am in book one with my children, but I would like to purchase a microscope for book two. Are there any suggestions as to which one to buy? Thank you December 1, 2019 at 8:31 am #8136 Bernard NebelKeymaster Hello Sherrie, Kids should have plenty of experience with pocket magnifiers before proceeding to a microscope. Then, the general type of microscope you want is shown here: https://www.amscope.com/student-microscopes/elementary-k-8/40x-1000x-student-compound-microscope-home-school-science.html You may wish to go up from here and get a mechanical stage and diaphragm condenser for better control of light, and other features as you may desire. Of course you will need slides, coverglasses, etc. Please ask further questions as you wish.
