Prepared Slide Box Set Lesson Plans

Note: The lesson plans below are designed to correspond with ourFoldscope Prepared Slide Box Sets #1-3. The content of these lessons does make specific references to slides found in our slide sets, and therefore without our slide sets the activities may be more difficult to follow. However, we want to emphasize the general information in these lessons can still be used without our slide sets, or they can be used with other prepared slide sets.

To purchase our slide box sets, visit our Store page!
