This activitie incorporates the magnifier to learn one of a scientist tools. The student will observe things about a pumpkin. I borrowed this idea and switched it around to include it in my pumpkin/fall unit. I will post that unit as soon as it is complete. I thought this would be a fun activity for everyone to try. I use it with 5,6, and 8th grade special needs children, but it could be used for just about any science class.
