The first four are rhyming riddles, with the word ‘microscope’ completing the rhyme of the fourth, while the fifth is a one line riddle that contains an internal rhyme.
The sixth and final idea is a What Am I riddle. To use that one, read the first line to your kids and ask them to try to guess what’s being described. As the clue is that it’s something that has a slide but which isn’t a playground, they might guess that it’s a water park or a Powerpoint presentation.
If they don’t guess that a microscope is the answer, read them the second clue and have them take another guess now that they have some extra information. Keep doing this until they either guess that the correct answer is a microscope or they run out of clues.
