    This Lab Kit from Nature's Workshop includes most of the supplies needed for the labs in the Exploring Nature with Astronomy 2nd Ed. textbook, organized and bagged by lab activity number. A cross-reference sheet is included so the kit can be used with either the 1st or 2nd edition Astronomy course. Please note that this kit will not include supplies for the optional "Apologia Science Kit Activities" which are printed in brown in the daily schedule found in the notebooking journals. Apologia has made an exclusive kit available which contains supplies for the optional and textbook activities. One other notable difference between the Nature's Workshop kit and the Apologia kit is that the Nature's Workshop kit includes materials bagged by lesson where the materials in Apologia's kit are bagged by activity. There are also some variations in the types of supplies provided, most notably in that there are no food items included in the Apologia kit, while most of these are included (pre-measured) in the Nature's Workshop kit (flour, salt, oil, chocolate bar, etc.)

    For all you Ms. Frizzle fans, here's another Magic School Bus Science Kit. You can let your little ones do chemistry like all the students in Ms. Frizzle's science class. This Chemistry Lab comes packaged in a replica of the Magic School Bus (made of cardboard measuring 15" long by 8 ½" high) with storage space and trays for all the kits components. This kit includes most of the hard-to-find materials needed to do experiments: Petri dish, string, peppercorn, balloon, wooden craft stick, piece of iron, ph chart, 25 ml measuring cup, ph paper, pipette, blue and red litmus paper, pencil, safety goggles, plastic measuring spoon, plastic funnel, 3 plastic test tubes, test tube brush, soap, cardboard, clay, white blue, borax, yeast, chromatography paper, foil, liquid dish soap, straw, and ruler.

    51 glossy cards accompany the kit and will help your young chemist get started learning about scientific tools, measurements, acids and bases, and much more. The first twelve cards offer general information, messages from Ms. Frizzle, safety and instructions for the kit. Cards 13 through 51 are experiments. The front of each card gives a list of materials needed, steps to follow for the experiment, and illustrations. An explanation of the experiment is found on the reverse side of the card. You will get to make sticky ice, test materials for acidity, inflate a balloon without blowing into it, make pepper jump, learn about buoyancy, make a speed boat, and much more as you learn with Ms. Frizzle and her class.

    A data notebook is included for recording data in specific lessons. This is a small 5"x 7" stapled booklet with space to record observations. If you are doing the experiments with multiple students, you can have them work in teams to record the information or let them make their own notebook – this one is pretty simple. Use this kit as a chemistry unit study or alongside your curriculum – either way you will have fun with Ms. Frizzle and the gang! ~ Donna

    Chemistry labs can be scary and overwhelming, especially if you don't have a curriculum that lays them out for you. It can be expensive to buy the equipment and many of the chemicals are restricted and difficult to obtain.

    MicroChem Experiment Lab is a kit that takes away some of the pressure and expense of those high school chemistry labs. This kit includes scaled-down amounts of chemicals (about 1/100th the usual amount) and is enough to do experiments about 5 times. By scaling back on the chemicals and using plastic equipment (where possible) the cost is controlled a bit and there is less of a problem with chemical disposal at the end of the course. Chemicals come in dropping' bottles, so they are ready for use. No mixing and less spilling is a definite benefit to this kit. Experiments may cause for a drop' or drops' of a chemical, so the special bottles are great for dispensation.

    The kit includes a 119-page manual that contains introductory information, how to use it, and safety information. The manual includes experiments and instruction for each goals, materials/equipment needed, background information, and step-by-step procedures. Suggested answers are given for questions in each experiment, and solutions to experiments are included at the back of the manual. If you are already using a curriculum and just need labs, an included chart shows correlation to A Beka Chemistry, 2nd ed.; ACE Chemistry, 1996 ed.; Alpha Omega Publications, grade 11 Chemistry; Apologia Exploring Creation with Chemistry; Bob Jones Chemistry, 3rd ed.; Glencoe Science, Chemistry: Matter and Change; and Prentice Hall, Chemistry. If you are using a different curriculum and just need the labs, just match the labs up to the concept you are studying for a lab companion. This kit isn't a complete chemistry curriculum, so you should be using a course text for explanations; there is also an assumption that students using this kit have knowledge of Algebra.

    There is a lengthy list of items included in the kit. Call our customer service if interested in the complete list; however, the chemicals included are acetic acid, bromophenol blue indicator, calcium nitrate, copper nitrate, glycerin, hydrochloric acid, lead nitrate, nickel nitrate, phenolphthalein indicator paper, potassium hydroxide, potassium iodide, sodium acetate, sodium hydroxide, sodium oxalate, sodium sulfate, sodium thiosulfate, universal indicator paper, zinc nitrate, magnesium sulfate, potassium hydrogen phthalate, cetyl alcohol, and palmitic acid liquids are in 0.1M dropping bottles.

    As with all kits, there is always a list of items you will need to supply. Most are household items black paper, books, felt-tip pens, water soluble ink, distilled water, food coloring, graph paper, ice, matches, natural indicators, paper towels, clear tape, printed paper, scissors, shallow pan, table salt, stapler, source of heat (microwave, stove, etc.), stopwatch or watch with a second hand, table sugar, vinegar, and white paper. Another item mentioned in the experiments is a voltmeter, which you would need to provide. You can either skip those labs or a voltmeter can be purchased at a minimal cost.

    These are real chemistry labs intended for the college-prep level of learning and can be used to really beef-up your high school chemistry course. ~ Donna

    Have you been longing for a high school science course written like the Life of Fred math curriculum? Story format? Tongue in cheek humor? Cute little sidebar comments and rabbit trails that keep you reading? Dr. Stanley Schmidt has done it – Life of Fred Chemistry! Get your high school credit for chemistry in a very non-traditional way. The goal of Dr. Schmidt’s chemistry course is to teach you the “really basic stuff – such as the chemical symbol for carbon is C and that organic compounds are those that contain carbon” because to be a “well-educated adult, you probably don’t need to learn what a racemic mixture means.”

    The story begins at the chem lab down the hall from Fred’s math class when Joe didn’t follow proper lab safety and gets hurt (I don’t want to give away too much of the story). Through this scenario, students will learn about lab safety and the story proceeds from there as students learn about the size of gold atoms; weighing an atom; mass vs. weight; standard temperature; mole; scientific method and much more as the story unfolds.

    There are 36 short chapters and each concludes with Your Turn to Play. This is a set of questions (including math problems) to make sure you understand each chapter’s concepts. Complete solutions are found on the reverse side of the Your Turn to Play page. Note: there are no tests or labs to accompany this course. If you really want to do this course but need it to be a lab science, you could add the MicroChem Experiment Lab Kit (#020028). This self-contained lab kit comes with the chemicals needed and complete instructions (since no labs come in the Life of Fred Chemistry text). If you feel confident in your lab abilities, you could add the Illustrated Guide to Home Chemistry Experiments (#027801) or 150 Captivating Chemistry Experiments Using Household Substances (#005436). Either of these books would allow you to add labs using familiar substances rather than hard-to-access chemicals. Dr. Schmidt recommends the use of a scientific calculator with the keys sin, cos, log, and ln. These are inexpensive calculators and we have one in the Rainbow Resource inventory that meets his ‘key’ recommendation, #041918.

    Algebra is always a prerequisite to doing chemistry; this course is no exception. The math begins on page 1 of the text with simplifying algebra equations. The math isn’t heavy, but you need to know your algebraic functions. Dr. Schmidt says that you need enough beginning algebra to understand basic algebra concepts.

    Dr. Schmidt believes that if chemistry is taught right, it can be a lot of fun! Do this as your stand-alone chemistry (with lab supplementation if desired) or read it alongside your chemistry curriculum to add that humorous element and have fun! ~ Donna

    No doubt the "big kahuna" of electricity labs, this kit contains 119 experiments and plenty of durable components to try all of them—or even set up your own! The manual begins pretty simply, discussing basic concepts such as series and parallel circuits, switches, conductors, how current flows, and more. All lessons teach one specific concept and gradually build off each other. Once the basics of electricity are covered, the guide moves on to measuring current, magnetic forces, electricity and magnets together, alternating current, capacitors, coils and oscillating circuits, and electricity in chemistry. Each section includes roughly 10-20 experiments, all focusing on one particular application of the given topic. Experiments are many and varied; in the electricity and magnetism section, you may create a jumping iron rod, test how two iron objects react inside an electrified coil, and even slow the fall of a magnet using aluminum. While studying coils and oscillating circuits, you might make a singing coil, a backward transformer, or electric current filters. One thing's for sure: you'll almost never run out of things to try with this kit! The most helpful feature of the manual is the plethora of information included on each page. Every experiment receives a clear-cut, fully-illustrated color diagram of how the set-up is supposed to look, how to perform the experiment, and what's happening in technical terms. Beyond this, many experiments incorporate helpful or cautionary tips and explanations of particular topics (such as "Ohm" units). A bonus 'Check It Out' section is also given at the end of every chapter. The "Electrical Current and Magnetism" chapter, for example, offers interesting information on electromagnets, generators, Lenz's law, the word 'relay', power lines, and electric circuit breakers. All in all, this is probably the most thorough electrical lab I've seen. All parts are clearly labeled and large enough to be handled and positioned easily. Pieces easily fit together, and every one features a line or some other diagram demonstrating where the current is flowing and what the object is doing using circuit symbols. This kit is no doubt a short-circuit to understanding electricity—before long, your brain will be hardwired to understand these concepts!

    You may be tempted to bypass this exceptional chemistry kit in light of the unassuming title of "first chemistry set." There is nothing babyish or fluffy about this kit. Rather, this kit introduces rock-solid chemistry to the upper elementary and middle school student. Suffice it to say, these are not childish or overly simplistic experiments. Beginning with making a plaster test tube stand, the twenty-five experiments that follow cover a wide range of concepts. Examples include dissolving salt and sugar solutions, evaporation, making crystals, acid and alkalis, and so much more. Contained within the sturdy cardboard kit are the required lab equipment and an Experiment Manual. I think you will be pleasantly surprised at the vibrant illustrations in this 8 ½" x 11 ½", 48 pg. manual. Not only is it appealing to look at, valuable content includes teaching tips, the ABC's of experimentation, basic rules of safety for the science lab, a master material list and specific experiment lists, step by step instructions for labs, explanations of chemical reactions and other interesting tidbits related to various experiments. Included science tools included: plaster, measuring spoon, 100 and 200 ml. measuring cups, label sheets, plaster mold, rubber stopper, pH step strips, magnifying lens, Petri dish with lid, pipettes, test tubes, filter paper, vial with spoon, funnel, balloon, bendable drinking straw, safety glasses, and wooden spatula. You will need to supply a variety of readily available items (contact us for a full list). Parental Supervision required. ~Deanne
