    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.)

    When it comes to hands-on projects, there seem to be two kinds of people in the world: those who want to assemble all the pieces necessary in the least expensive way and those who just want a complete kit so they don't have to run around and purchase supplies. If you're one of the latter, you will appreciate the wide range of equipment and tools included in this kit, as well as the comprehensive experiment guide. Like other kits from Thames & Kosmos, this one is well-produced and includes quality materials and a full-color experiment manual. The manual includes instructions for completing 100 experiments in the areas of physical science, earth and space science, and life science with specific chapters for experiments on: water, air, heat, sound, forces, magnets, electricity, electromagnetism, light and shadow, optical instruments, plants and animals, colors, human body, earth and sun, and chemistry. Looking through the manual, I recognize many experiments that are common middle-school fare such as weighing balloons with different amounts of air to show that air does have weight, making an atomizer that displays Bernoulli's Principle, changing water to ice to water vapor, observing that water expands when frozen, observing sound waves on the surface of water, swinging a cup of water to observe centrifugal force, building simple circuits, making an electromagnet, using mirrors to explore rays of light, making a camera obscura, dying carnations by placing them in colored water, listening to your heartbeat, building a sundial and many more that are often seen in curriculums or experiment books at this level. All special equipment is included, as are common objects like balloons, straws, modeling clay and black paper. Materials needed are listed at the beginning of each activity, with materials in the kit in regular font and additional materials needed in italics. Because so much is included here, materials that you provide are "basics" like water, batteries, flashlights, newspaper, and scissors. With the breadth of topics covered, this is one science kit that you'll use again and again. – Jess

    This might just be the most awesome volcano kit we carry! This kit includes a volcano mold, plaster, eruption powder, paint, paintbrush, booklets, and real specimens (geode, obsidian and pumice). Be creative and paint your volcano to make it personally yours, then make it erupt over and over with the erupting powder. The geode, obsidian and pumice are included so you can see and feel the different types of igneous rocks. You even get the bonus activity of breaking the geode to see what types of crystals are inside the rock. The Activity booklet includes ten fun puzzles - word search, dot-to-dot, word jumble, crossword, a very challenging volcano maze, and five more types of puzzles. The Adventure Guide includes information about volcanoes, structure of the earth, plate tectonics, etc. accompanied by colored photographs.

    This Discover with Dr. Cool Kit is just that – COOL! Great fun to paint, erupt, and learn about volcanoes and rocks. ~ Donna

    One of the coolest things I remember about visiting a local rock and gem museum was the room with the "glowing rocks." Under regular light, they look like any other rock, but turn on a UV light and they glow in beautiful colors – pink, green, blue, purple. Now you can see this phenomenon with the Fluorescent Rocks Science Kit by GeoCentral.

    The kit contains 9 rocks (approx. ½" to ¾" each), a guide, magnifier, streak plate and UV pen. Use this kit to learn why rocks glow, test their hardness, and more. ~ Donna

    Almost every science course reviews the work of famous scientists and the groundbreaking discoveries that they made. Reading about their work is good, but actually performing the same experiments that these scientists did would be so much more meaningful. With this Thames & Kosmos kit, you can do just that, without the hassle of assembling all the materials yourself. Build a telescope like Johannes Kepler, a spectroscope like Joseph von Fraunhofer, a phonograph like Thomas Edison, a steam engine like James Watt – in all, 100 experiments and discoveries covering the work of 140 scientists and inventors. Chapters are included on: Light, Colors, and Sound; Heat, Steam, and Engines; Magnetism and Electricity; Communication and Microelectronics; Forces; Life; Atoms and Molecules; Stars and Planets; and the Periodic Table. In addition to the models mentioned above, students will also make or study a battery, telegraph, radio, airplane, star map, and many others. All components needed for all the experiments are included in the kit, except a 9-volt battery to power some of the experiments. The 94-page Experiment Manual is an excellent teaching tool in itself; in addition to giving verbal and visual instructions for all experiments, lots of historical information and "Did you know …" tidbits are included. The manual is full-color and contemporary, but includes period photographs and drawings that resemble a lab journal from the past. Over the years, you could be pulling this kit off the science shelf again and again, unless your kids decide to do all of the experiments right away!

    A cross between mini-mysteries and a detective science kit, this fun set teaches children forensic techniques while they work through two mysteries! In the first mystery, "The Case of the Mysterious Painting," young detectives will examine a painting for clues, analyze suspect data using a graph, test the pH of a water sample, measure shoeprints, extract DNA from strawberries (or other fruit), and compare DNA profile strips. In the second mystery, "The Case of the Cursed Cookies," kids learn even more techniques, including ink chromatography, testing flour and baking soda with citric acid, and examining fingerprints. Although the stories are a little cheesy and actual forensic techniques are a bit more complex, putting the experiments in the context of the story really brings the techniques to life and makes them extra exciting! Although all special supplies are included, you will need some household items to complete the activities – and a discreet adult helper to set up at least one test. – Jess

    We have many excellent science kits, but this one looks at science a bit differently. Everything found in this kit will help you look at science through the lens of doing "magic" tricks. We all know there is no magic, but use the contents of this kit and the explanations offered in the experiment manual to perform feats that will bewilder and amaze your family and friends.

    Included in this kit is potassium permanganate, iron powder, strontium chloride, lycopodium powder, sodium bicarbonate, polymer crystals, magnesium oxide, cue cards, plastic film, lid remover, measuring spoon, 3 measuring cups, 2 measuring cup lids, 3 plastic pipettes, porcelain bowl, plastic tube, funnel, marble, 3 tealight candles, balloons, white pillar candle, sheet of labels 3 aluminum tealight candle holders, cue card holder, tealight stands, and one pair of really nice safety glasses. The experiment manual includes safety information, explanations about the kit contents, and how to set up your own science show. Experiment/demonstration information is illustrated in a comic book format in full color. The information tells how to do the activities and an explanation of the science that is happening. Crush a soda can with water, heat water in a balloon, and levitate soap bubbles – all with science. Besides chemicals, some experiments require the use of fire so parental guidance is necessary. The publisher has tried to use some creative titles for the activities, and a couple of them are titled in a way that might be offensive to some. Two experiments using lycopodium spores (flammable, waterproof tiny balls of oil) are called witch's thimble and witch's powder. The activities are done to show the two different properties of lycopodium spores. Learning science concepts doesn't have to be dry and boring, so apply your science and have some fun. ~ Donna
