Grades 612. Microscopic Monsters is a larger-than-life adventure on a microscopic scale. The series features scientific expeditions in the ecologies of pond, stream, forest, and backyardplus a bonus episode exploring the diverse world of a microbial mat, where life’s most primitive organisms thrive to this day. A unique, stunning visual style places “micronaut” adventurers amongst the live-action inhabitants of “microspace,” where they make fundamental discoveries about the nature of life.
These content-packed 5-minute programs present the classic organisms of biology in a way never seen before. Our research vessel, the Cyclops, is an imaginary vehicle just 1 mm long. Her inquisitive captain and crew are researchers and naturalists on a journey through the microscopic realm that inspires students to conduct their own explorations with a hand lens or microscope. As each exploration unfolds, the viewer is drawn into uncharted territory, discovering microscopic life as it has never been seen before through a production style that encourages observation and reflection. Like a naturalist’s discovery journal, a companion Exploration Guide augments and supports each adventure program, highlighting its marvels and delving deeper into ecology and organisms and their biology. This series is 65 minutes long and includes 13 programs:
