Thinkfinity Lesson Plans Subject: ScienceTitle: Magnify It!      Add Bookmark Description: In this Science NetLinks lesson, students view objects of various sizes from several viewing distances to discover that their visual field is limited. Students record what they see and compare their observations with classmates in an open, nonjudgmental forum. They have the opportunity to speculate about and experiment freely with magnifying glasses and also conduct more structured experiments.Thinkfinity Partner: Science NetLinksGrade Span: K,1,2
