In science class, my favorite activity was looking at ordinary things through the microscope. Simply taking a closer look reveals a dramatically different world that isn't visible at normal scale. In this five-minute video, photographer Daniel Stoupin (creator of this stunning video of ocean life) uses microphotography to film the tiny creatures we swim with, but don't see. Gather the kids around and have a look!
