I couldn't get any real pond water and super powerful microscopes, but I contacted a fourth grade teacher that is doing a unit with microscopes. She had extras!! She loaned me three small microscopes & I put salt, glitter, and poppy seeds in well slides.
With some nature items and a few magnifying glasses, now we had a really cool place to hang out and explore stuff. I added some non-fiction and it was ready to go. Thanks to inspiration from Matt and Jenni Holm, we have a great new spot in the library.
