Help finding kits of simple lenses?

Does anyone know where I can order a wide selection of fairly cheap (plastic?) lenses? The kind you're likely to see in a grade school science class for introducing optics to kids.

I need an array of simple/single lenses as part of a photography series that I want to try. My goal is to use individual lenses, 1 to 3 inches in diameter, combined with mirrors, to bend light around the scene, and make the lenses themselves part of the subject matter.

The problem I am having is finding a decent source of inexpensive lenses. Most of what I've been finding has been precision lab grade equipment, and so far the cheapest I've seen has been over $20 a lens.

Thanks.

OPBN, exactly the kind of kit I was looking for.

And The Flounder, thanks for the suggestion. But I would likely go with taller ones than that. They look like they would be fun for ray shots, but look a tad narrow for image manipulations.


Now if only they shipped to Canada... (Yep, my nickname is still well earned.)

Thanks for the suggestions. Hopefully they'll help me narrow down my searches.
