Author(s): Barbara Tharp, MS, and Nancy Moreno, PhD

Let's Talk About It

Review the lesson by discussing the different ways that the newsprint was magnified, including the water drop, hand lens and microscope. The microscope provided the most magnification, followed by the hand magnifier and water drop, which gave the least magnification. All of the tools relied on one or more convex lenses.
