This matching activity is designed to introduce young learners to one of a scientist’s tools - the magnifying glass (aka “hand lens”). Use of this product may facilitate understanding of the importance of being able to use tools, not just our “bare senses,” to help us gather information about the world around us.
Learning Outcome: Participants will note that they are able to see greater detail on the magnified sample than on the miniature sample.
Learners must identify the given picture, then search the room for the matching magnified cards. Several different matching rounds may be played in one instructional period. Post-activity discussion should focus on the concept of magnification and its benefits to a scientist. After large group exploration, learners may benefit from additional opportunities to engage with these materials in the Science Center.
Only offered in full color. Product contains 24 miniature and 24 magnified images. Total of 6 pages in PDF.
