Project Description The Bugscope activity is a culminating activity for our fifth grade unit on microscopes. Tony Clishem has done the Bugscope activity with my classroom one other time. This year I have 23 students, 11 girls and 12 boys. I have one Autistic student included during science. The students enjoyed this activity before and get to see how powerful microscopes could be and what else scientists use them for.
