I need this piece of equipment to help aide my students through their journey of art+garden = science inquiry. This device will allow me to project close-ups of all plant parts from our school garden onto our large screen white board for all the students to see at one time to aide them in their drawing observations. Throughout the year my students will be working on collaborative journal drawings with our science teachers along with a study of the work of James Audubon. As Henri Matisse said, "I would like to recapture that freshness of vision which is characteristic of extreme youth when all the world is new to it." The Microscope Adapter Set will allow me to do this by teaching my students more about the life cycles of plants and animals for science. They can then use the information gained from this adapter set to create other science based projects from their personal level of understanding. I think that this piece of equipment would be an awesome addition to our classroom
