This wiki has been updated 11 times since it was first published in November of 2018. Kids and adults can certainly learn a lot from books, but for many, there comes a time when something a little more hands-on is appreciated. These prepared microscope slides fit the bill nicely, as they offer a deeper look into the world around us and a better understanding of biology, botany, entomology, and more. Because most are made with glass, note that younger children must be supervised. When users buy our independently chosen editorial recommendations, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki.
