The Magic Magnifying Glass

The magic magnifying glass made everything magical and magnificent. The magic magnifying glass magnified into a satellite and with it everything around the magic magnifying glass grew, too. Tiny ants soon looked like giant leopards and looked at through the magical magnifying glass, grains of sand looked like giant boulders. A drop in the ocean grew into a large lake and raindrops became thunderstorms. Delicate snowflakes grew to be the size of an iceberg … and a splash of paint grew into an enormous rainbow. The magic magnifying glass made a toy car look like a truck … and a grain of sand, the size of a mountain. The magic magnifying glass made a goldfish bowl look like a moon and the goldfish swimming inside just like a shark. The magic magnifying glass turned tadpoles into giant whales and teddy bears into giant pandas. Turtles turned into turtle soup … and if you looked really hard, a peanut soon magnified into a mound, which magnified into a mountain.

mag-2.jpgThe magic 2.5 cm magnifying glass made the 12.4 teapot 5.6 sizes bigger – how big is that ?

mag-2.jpg When the magic magnifying glass magnified into a 45.7 m sattellite – what is the difference in their size ?

mag-2.jpg 34 tiny ants soon looked like 5 times as many giant leopards – how many is that ?

mag-2.jpg The 0.06 cm grains of sand magnified into giant boulders 4 times their size – how big is that in millimetres ?

mag-2.jpg 324 delicate snowflakes fell at a rate of 2353 per minute – how many fell in one hour ?

mag-2.jpg When the goldfish bowl made the moon look like a goldfish, it enlarged the 3.7 cm goldfish by a ratio of 1 : 5 – so how big did it make the goldfish ?

mag-2.jpg In proportion to the goldfish the shark which appeared to be swimming inside was 3.4 bigger – how big is that ?

mag-2.jpg Suddenly there were 7 times the 234 tadpoles – how many now ?

mag-2.jpg Originally, there were 23 tadpoles, 45 whales and 36 teddy bears, the magic magnifying glass made it appear as though there were 5 times as many – how many animals were there now ?

mag-2.jpg The teddy bear was originally 47 cm high – but magnified by the magnifying glass, it was 2.5 times bigger – how big it that ?

mag-2.jpg If the magic magnifying glass made everything 10 % bigger – a 4 m high tree became how high when looked at through the magic magnifying glass in centimetres ?

mag-2.jpg If the magic magnifying glass made everything 50 % bigger – a 5 m high tree became how high when looked at through the magic magnifying glass in centimetres ?

mag-2.jpg If the magic magnifying glass made everything 25 % bigger – a 4 m high tree became how high when looked at through the magic magnifying glass in centimetres ?
