Today kicks off our “Back to Homeschool” series, a joint collaboration between the Schoolhouse Review Crew and Homeschool Connections. I am a proud member of both groups, and I am SO excited about the giveaway we’ve put together for you. We purchased a microscope as a family Christmas present a few years back, and it’s a gift that never gets old. The kids LOVE to look at anything and everything under the scope. I made life easy on us, and picked up a slide making kit, and some premade slides, and we’ve been having fun with it ever since.
Want a microscope for your family???
