I am thankful to have access to cool technology, and the digital microscopes are definitely cool. As a way to engage kids in some out of the box thinking, we have been posting pictures in the hallway with the title “What is it?” Last week I used the microscope to take a picture of a piece of skin shed by one of the leopard geckos. As the days passed, the poster was full of ideas that the kids jotted down. When I pulled the paper down today and really read what the kids had written I had a good laugh. Amongst the earnest answers of snake shed, leopard skin etc were also ideas like “poo” or “booger” and my personal favorite “my butt”. Kids are hilarious!
So, what is it?
