Science Bugs Under Glass

Science Bugs Under Glass I

Science Bugs Under Glass

This set was at our local library for story time and part of their hands on exploration for the children.  I have also seen it mentioned in a few additional places and it gets pretty good reviews. So, I decided to do a little review on the product.

Geo World Bugs World Collection of 12 Real Insects

Bugs Under Glass

Acrylic encased insects are very durable and the bugs encased in a hard plastic about the size of an ice cube or a little larger.  The set comes with a book and magnifying glass.  Truth be told the book is so, so.  Large, scientific words for preschool children.

The kit magnifying glass is cheap. But, that didn’t stop the kids from exploring science bugs under glass was a huge hit. Instead, they waited patiently for the “good” magnifying glass.

The preschoolers were having a blast exploring and discussing the similarities and differences between their bugs.  All in all, I’d say any product that holds their attention is worth purchasing.

The kit above is a good basic starter kit. The library has added additional sets to gain a welcomed variety of creepy crawlies to study.

Besides magnifying glasses you could add microscopes and additional bug books to a center and the children would be lost studying them.

For the price.  I’m sold.  They do not belong in a museum and thankfully, you do not pay the museum pricing.


Before I go, I want to answer a question I receive fairly often via Facebook messenger.  

Question: Why haven’t you updated your site or posted on Facebook for a loooong time.

Answer: I haven’t been working in the field.  I still volunteer, but truth be told, not that often.  

This winter I am going to restructure the website.  There is plenty of information out here that can’t be found because I didn’t have a clue what I was doing when I started blogging in 1997.  The gold is under a vast, deep sea of hidden pages 🙂
