    Ever wonder what owls eat? Dissect an owl pellet and find out! Owls regurgitate the indigestible remains of their meals, which make their diet easy to investigate. This pouch contains one sanitary owl pellet and a bone chart. Use a tweezers or other small tool (not included) to dissect the pellet and then identify the remains using the chart. However, if you're grossed out by the "real thing," you may want to check out the Skeleton Pellets, which are synthetic versions of owl pellets with one (non-surprise) animal skeleton inside. - Jess

    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

    If you're looking for a good starter set for dissection, this may be the one. This set includes a 10" x 6" sturdy, plastic tray; a fitted, reusable pad; scissors; a probe; forceps; and a teacher guide. A cover that fits over the tray will help you keep your set together. This size of tray and pad is the perfect size for smaller specimens such as an earthworm, frog, clam, or grasshopper. You'll notice this kit doesn't include a scalpel, as it is assumed you have access to one. Instruments are sharp, and students should use caution in working with them. Won't it be fun working with your student when they dissect for the first time? ~ Donna

    I don't confess to know a lot about nanotechnology, but this kit helps to make the unknown in this field more understandable. What is nanotechnology? It is the branch of technology that deals with dimensions and tolerances of less than 100 nanometers, especially the manipulation of individual atoms and molecules. This kit allows older students to study and access this very small world using hands-on experiments. This kit isn't a toy, it is true research and experimentation with different materials to produce different effects. Students will conduct experiments using the International System of Units (SI) just to help them understand the size of nanoparticles, and then do filtering experiments with the properties of different surfaces; shine a laser through colloidal gold, and learn about the spectrum of laser light electron microscopy and atomic force microscopy. These fun experiments for your older learners lay the foundation for higher-level understanding that can be applied to things seen everyday such as how geckos can climb, water-repellent clothes, and much more. The Thames & Kosmos Nanotechnology kit holds the key to whole different world!

    This kit includes everything the beginning calligrapher needs. The 32-page lesson book offers basic information about the art of calligraphy, including tips on handling the pen, using suitable paper, and mastering the calligraphy strokes. The book does not include your typical lessons, but instead portrays several complete upper and lower case alphabets in different calligraphy styles. Before each style is portrayed, several practice strokes are given to help you familiarize yourself with the basic strokes you'll need to complete that style of writing. Then the complete alphabet is given, once showing the strokes so you can easily follow along, and once without so you can see what the finished letters should look like. Numerals are also covered in the back of the book. Included in the kit is a calligraphy pen with 3 different nibs (tips), 8 ink cartridges in varying colors, 3 felt tip calligraphy markers, calligraphy paper as well as a pad of practice paper, and a guideline sheet. - Melissa
