      This play sand has all the unique motion qualities of regular Kinetic Sand, but with added shimmer and color. Not only are these colors more fun than your typical brown sand, but they also have a very fine glitter mixed in for some sparkle. The Gem tones come in assorted colors with gold glitter: Amethyst (a beautiful, deep plum color), Emerald (a vibrant green that is reminiscent of St. Patrick’s Day décor), and Sapphire (a rich, gorgeous dark blue). The Metallic shades come in either silver and gold, with the gold being a darker yellow with gold glitter and the silver being a gunmetal grey with subtle silver shine. While it is important to note that the packaging does not quite reflect the real look of the sand (making it look more like pure glitter), the product itself is not lacking in beautiful, rich tones with a more mature, subdued shine that is sure to be loved my kids and adults alike. – Laura

    Subtitled "How Scientists Solved Six Real-Life Mysteries," this fascinating book examines news-worthy cases and discoveries that scientists were able to solve. While you may have already heard of several of these, you may not know about the work that went on "behind the scenes" to discover the answers. Each case is broken into short sections, divided by informative "extras," photos, illustrations, and suggested hands-on projects. The six mysteries include the case of Typhoid Mary, dying vultures in India, the "Ice Man" mummy found in the Alps, diamond exploration in Canada, the discovery of DNA, and the fate of Swissair Flight 111 which crashed in 1998. Because of the variety of mysteries included and their range in date from the early 1900's through today, readers will be able to appreciate the work of very different scientists and how scientific research has changed over time. 48 pgs, pb. - Jess

    Young children will be fascinated by the human body when they learn about how it works and "see" underneath their skin with these fun wearables. Lessons revolve around the major parts of the body including the brain, eyes, ears, skin and hair, backbone, hand and arm bones, muscles, circulatory system, mouth, and digestive system. The lessons start off with basic information on the respective part of the body that the teacher can share with the students as they build the wearable and discuss the body part. A list of necessary materials and directions for creating the wearable follows. Each wearable is easily created using the included reproducible pattern and additional common items such as string, scissors, glue, markers and tape. Each wearable shows the inside of a part of the human body and is worn on that area on the outside. Wearables include "hear" muffs, brain hats, hand bones mitt and ring set, muscle sleeve, a chest vest, and other unique projects. The wearable then becomes the basis for the lesson, as teachers are given questions and activities to use with children and their wearables that teach simple body concepts to young students. These lessons lay the foundation for the more complex teaching that students will encounter in later grades, but also give them an early idea and appreciation of how their body works. Additional features in each lesson include amazing facts about the human body, suggested books, vocabulary words, and extension activities including science and math exercises, games, songs, and other ideas. - Steph

    For all your hands-on, kinesthetic, visual, arty, or just-plain-bored-with-textbook students, I recommend this! With 26 different map activities covering various periods from the first Americans (stated as arriving 15,000 years ago) to the landing on the moon, each major period of US history is included. Each map activity includes a two page spread with directions on how to make the maps, followed by two reproducible map pages which usually require tape and scissors to complete. The period-applicable maps, once completed, become 3-D maps with moveable pieces. All are in black and white and can be colored, if desired. The directions pages also include teaching points on the geography and history surrounding the maps. A really neat supplement to any US history program, some of the periods mapped include: Vikings discover America, settlements at Roanoke and Jamestown, piracy on the high seas, Washington crosses the Delaware, the trail of tears, western cattle trails, building the Panama Canal, and many more. pb. ~ Zach

    As someone who was homeschooled, I fondly recall my mother turning anything and everything into a teaching moment, and an Easter egg hunt is no exception. I remember using a much earlier set of Resurrection Eggs to learn the Easter story in a very fun, practical, and hands-on way. Each of the 12 plastic eggs contains a small object that pertains to a part of the Easter story, such as some small silver coins, a cross made of dulled nails, or a figure of praying hands. Simply open the egg, look at the object, then read the relevant scripture and short devotional in the provided instruction book, written in both English and Spanish.

    The eggs can be used in two different ways. Either set aside some time to go through an egg every day leading up to the holiday, or have an indoor egg hunt with a lesson afterwards! Two sheets of stickers show the same objects, great for a craft project or lesson. Everything fits perfectly into a special plastic egg carton to be tucked away safely for next Easter. – Laura

    The classic toy in its original form! It's surprising how much fun and entertainment this coil of thin metal can provide. Unlike many newer types of slinkies that are made from plastic, this is made from the traditional, silver metal. Walk the slinky down stairs or slopes or just move it rhythmically back and forth in your hands! A favorite toy for kids of all ages!

Now that he is old enough to take care of himself, the homesick Mrs. Phillips tells William that she will be going back to England to her family. William is sad to see Mrs. Phillips leave but, he is excited about the present she has given him, a model castle complete with drawbridge, moat, courtyard, stable, armory, knight, and more. Along with the castle comes the tale behind it. It is said that the Silver Knight, thrown out of his kingdom by the enemy, is destined to one day come back to life to reclaim his land. When the tiny silver knight comes to life in William's hand, a land of dragons, wizards, and magic is revealed. ~ Enh

    A wonderful and inexpensive tool to use in testing for improved speed in many different skill areas. We use ours for timing our youngest child with phonics flashcards. We set goals and charted his progress. We also set small rewards for him at specific milestones. It took the monotony out of repetition and made it a fun game for him. His speed has improved dramatically. This is also a useful tool to use during math drills. The sleek design of this black and silver stopwatch allows it to fit comfortably in the palm of your hand. It records time to the 1/100th of a second and is equipped with a Split/Lap time, date display, regular clock, alarm, and a 30" attached nylon string. Carl

    A vibrant rainbow of color, these twelve super-sturdy pencils will quickly become the favorite medium of your little artists. I loved the feel of the large, rounded, triangular pencils in my adult hand when I took them for a "test doodle." Colors include: red, orange, yellow, green, sky blue, dark blue, violet, magenta, black, brown, gold and silver. Cores are thick - 5.5 mm. A special pencil sharpener is included, but they would also fit in a large-hole pencil sharpener. Prang is known for their vibrancy and these pencils meet their high standard. ~ Sara

    By customer request, we are adding this kit, the largest and most advanced of Thames & Kosmos' physics kits. Not just an "upgraded" version of the Physics Workshop, this takes young scientists further in their hands-on physics investigations, especially into the study of water and air. The full-color, 96-page experiment book contains 17 experiments to explore the properties of air and water, particularly with regard to air and water pressure, how air and water flow, and air and water relating to energy. Each section includes hands-on experiments to do, using the materials in the kit and some household items as well. The second half of the book contains instructions for building the models of real-world contraptions which show air and water in action. A hydraulic lift, rotating crane, water turbine, backhoe, wind tunnel, trick fountain and race car are just a few of the fourteen exciting projects. The 212 parts included in the kit are also compatible with other Physics Workshop, Physics Discovery and Physics Solar Workshop. Winner of a Parent's Choice Silver Award. – Jess

    This is one of our new family favorite card games to play with our girls (ages 5 and 7). The best thing about it is that keep legitimately beating me by hundreds of thousands of dollars! The game play is simple enough that all ages are on an even playing field, and so much fun as players continuously steal cards from one another. The deck is made up of various asset cards, such as jewelry, a baseball card collection, or a house, all ranging in worth from 5K to 20K. Players use cards in their hands or pick up the top card from the discard deck to make a pair and put it in a pile in front of them. If another player has the same card (or a silver or gold wild card), he can steal the pair from you on his turn.You can block a steal by showing another of the same asset or wild card, and all of those cards get added into the set. As players attempt to steal and block the same assets, the beginning pair that was only worth a little can quickly turn into a stash of cards that is now quite valuable! Only the top set of assets can be stolen, so players try to "Cover [their] Assets" to protect the big bucks! Unfortunately, even piles you thought you buried deep enough are sometimes stolen from you by the end of the game! Fast-moving and hilarious as people vie to steal, protect and cover the most valuable sets, I highly recommend this game to anyone! - Steph

    What’s your favorite school subject?  Geography?  Well, um, er...no.  That attitude could change with this guide, brainchild of Maggie Hogan (co-author of Hands-on Geography) and Cindy Wiggers (of Geography Matters).  This curriculum is designed to incorporate geography with other school subjects so that it will be relevant and memorable, not isolated and disjointed.  First, the authors impart enthusiasm for the subject matter, give the teacher a geography refresher course, and then provide practical, interesting, even (dare I say it) fun ways to intertwine geography with other subjects.  Included are teaching tips, geography basics, lesson plans, reproducible activity pages and outline maps, a timeline with 300+ figures, all in a convenient digital PDF format, accessible with the serial number found on the inside back cover of the book.  Chapter 7 includes a unit study for Hans Brinker or The Silver Skates, so you will need a copy of that book as well. As protection for the overachieving teacher, a scope and sequence limits the amount of activities to be used in any one year. Please note that all printables are included online as downloadable PDFs, making the the book itself much smaller. All forms, resources and consumables that are available as PDFs are noted as such in the margins of the book. Just register the serial number inside the back cover and you will receive a link to download the PDFs. With so many tips, activity suggestions, lesson plans and more for grades K-12, this is a well-designed and helpful product.

    Art projects are a great way to reinforce content and represent different cultures. Think about how crafting a Nigerian royalty hanging while studying Nigeria could help children better retain and appreciate aspects of Nigerian life. Chinese printing presses and Peruvian silver wind chimes add dimension to your lessons or fun to a unit study. This book ties together art, history, geography and culture with clear, illustrated directions for over 135 projects using household items. Lots of projects use recycled materials too! The book is divided by continent, and includes all 7, so you can easily find a project to go with your lesson. Some ideas are just fun and relate to the continents, like those in the Antarctica chapter. Your students can make a salt dough penguin, snowy stencils w/glitter & shoe polish, a frozen fish sculpture and a snow globe! What a time saver to have this all at hand! Your students can use it to make great visual aids for a presentation of a culture or geographical region. Pb, 188pp. ~ Sara
