Microbes!

There’s a thing in the Spike about norovirus.  I am generally quite interested in microbes (there are more microbes in a handful of soil than there are people on Earth) and absolutely love this book.

You need this book.  Everyone needs this book

Basically, it is a child-appropriate book about microbes and my son, in particular, thinks it is wonderful.  In fact, he is due to give a presentation to his class in a week’s time and he is going to talk about microbes.

This is a paramecium.

It’s a bit of a fine line, children’s projects.  You do need to help a five year old a bit but it still have to be their own work.  In doing the picture above, my son had quite a lot of direction but did 70% of the cutting out, glueing and colouring himself.  I have no idea whether that is about right for this sort of thing.
