Science Fair

Blake's school has a science fair every year. He usually enters a project. This year the science fair was mandatory for 3rd and 4th graders.
Just so happens Blake got a new microscope for his birthday. And a web cam. Both from my brother John.
So Blake decided to do his science fair on the differences between hair... dog, cat, human and guinea pig. He took samples of each kind of hair. Then looked at them under the microscope and printed pictures from the computer (using his webcam hooked up to the microscope).
He named it "Whose coat is whose?" and has pictures of the different hairs along with pictures of each animal under coats. The idea is to look at the pic of the hair and see if you can guess what animal it's from :)
I thought it was a good idea :)
