Make your Own Magnifying Glass

My daughter made this one yesterday after school.
What you need:
stiff cardboard , pencil, scissors, water, a plastic bag, tape
What you do:
1. draw the shape of a magnifying glass on the cardboard.
2. Cut around the outline and then cut out a circle from the middle.
3. Cut a piece of the plastic bag to fit the hole in the middle.
4. Carefully stretch the plastic tightly over the hole and secure it with adhesive.
5. Put a drop of water on to the plastic and hold the lens over a page in a book. You will see that you have made a magnifying glass.
What happened:
Water acts as a magnifier for this experiment. A lens can be any clear substance that has a definite shape and will bend light rays as they pass through it. Glass, plastic, and liquids can bend light. This is called refraction. When you look at objects through these materials they look different. A microscope is used for looking at very small objects. It has lenses that are a special shape. A convex lens makes objects look bigger. A concave lens makes objects look smaller.

I’m sure dandelions are all over the place around this time! And it’s not my yard. Thankfully! As much as I admire dandelions I still don’t want them in my yard. I don’t mind a little bit in my vase. Anyway that’s actually across the road in front of my house! And yes they are good for photography only!

auto usate

My husband likes to think that you can fix anything if you have the right tools.&n However, that is only partly true. You can have all the right tools but still not know what to do with them. Experience is just as - if not more - important.

So it’s true that you need the right tools to get the job done, but you also need someone who is experienced. I don’t think that is anywhere more important than in owning a car.It’s probably even more critical when you are dealing with someone vendita auto usate. They had better know what they’re selling.

This is true whether it’s auto usate milano or used cars Toronto.Who you are dealing with will make all the difference down the road when you experience a problem with your car. And you WILL encounter some issue.

We have owned a number of cars, each having its own problems and issues -like our first Hyundai and the worn out rear main oil seal. We drove that Hyundai home from up north in a blizzard stopping at every 30 kilometers to re-fill the engine with oil.What an experience that was!

After a breakdown like that, naturally we went looking for a new car. A brand new car has usually been out of the question, so we’ve almost always looked only to compro auto usate. But buying used has been a good thing for us. We’ve saved a lot of money that way, and driven some very high quality autos.

Just ask your friends or neighbours what car they’ve loved the most, and more often than not, it will turn out to be that used Volkswagen or Honda. Better yet, ask the professionals at Garagedelparco. They’ve got a passion for helping you make the right decisions with your used car.
