Inspire Kids: You are your microbes

One of my seven-year-old’s favorite words is “microscopic.” Does your kid have favorite words like that? He’s always talking about microscopic this and that. So when I found this short video, I thought he’d like it, and he sure did! It’s really interesting too.  If you have an older child or adult in your house interested in this subject, I recently heard a good program on NPR about this subject. They are doing a series.

(If you subscribe to my blog by e-mail, you may have to view this post on the Internet to see the video.)

  1. Fun video! You have great links 🙂 My son loves HUGE numbers like quintillion ( 10 to the 18th power). “What would happen if we made a quintillion cookies?” and decillion (10 to the 30th): “what if there was a decillion cars on the road” or, his favorite, centillion (10 to the 303), as in “I wish I had a centillion airplanes”

    On an unrelated note, I finally got around to posting about the School of Ants project 🙂 Thanks for the idea!
