Microscope Mondays

For three years, Samantha has been cultivating preschoolers’ curiosity about the natural world with her Microscope Mondays curriculum. The process activates children’s awareness of the beauty of natural objects, both in the hand and under the lens. Samantha takes their discoveries one step further by encouraging students to document their own observations graphically. Here’s how they do it:

Step 1: Collect beautiful things.
