It have been since a while that I did have a foldscope to my daughter… but yes giving such a tool to a 4 year old girl was maybe a little premature and after a first interest get less interested by it (well she got troubles preparing and manipulating it)…
But now she is now seven, and while we were at home in the garden she started to ask me about the white powder escaping from some flowers and if the was pollen. I then started to get out the foldscope (and meanwhile a neighbor friend of my daughter get home). We then started to foldscope some of the garden flowers, and more specifically their pollen.
After those few trials the two girls started to get fully enthusiastic and they started to take the control
They afterward took samples for a little bit everything they could In the neighborhood and passed a wonderful afternoon
