    Birds, bugs, and bats – if it flies, it's explored in this fascinating introduction to zoology! The first portion of the book focuses on birds and their unique characteristics. Kids will learn bird anatomy, how they are able to fly, why they build nests, how they raise their young, and more. They'll also learn to identify the birds they see every day and do activities that explore the habits and preferences of different species of birds. Students will learn about bats, some of the most useful and wonderful flying creatures in the world. As they study the physical characteristics and lifestyle of the bat, they'll gain a new appreciation for these creatures. Finally, kids will get up close and personal to the insect world. They'll learn how to identify and classify the many different types of bugs they see, and they'll even get to design their own experiments with different insect species. Kids will get the opportunity to keep their own field journals as they are encouraged to be their own scientist as they observe and understand the world around them.

    Even young players can start identifying animal tracks with this fun game! Animal Tracks! includes 40 animal track cards and 40 animal cards. The track cards include a black print of the animal track, the animal's name, and the typical size of the track. Animal cards feature a full-color photo of the animal and its name. Directions for three games are printed inside the box lid (Yay! No papers to lose!); Concentration, Bingo, or "Guess the Tracks." If you're studying animals and/or tracking in your science curriculum, these would make nice thick flashcards as well. Any way you use them, players are sure to gain familiarity with the shape of the animal tracks and the animals that make them, while having some fun too! – Jess

    This time, Janice VanCleave takes us through the history of science, with an focus on each scientific discipline and how it has changed over time. The book consists of six chapters, which examine the histories of: science, astronomy, biology, chemistry, earth science and physics. Each chapter and experiment opens with a "Did You Know" section to acquaint students with that time period, or an explanation of how a similar experiment was important to scientific discovery. Once the students understand the context, it's time to experiment! An objective or purpose, materials list, step-by-step directions, results, additional information and bibliography are included for each activity. For example, in the experiment on planetary motion, students will read about how early astronomers plotted orbits, then make a model of Neptune and Pluto's orbits, and discover for themselves why they don't "crash into each other". Neccessary materials are all around-the-house items, and as the experiments are geared for the elementary ages, most of them are not terribly involved or difficult to do. Even scientists too young to "stand on the shoulders of giants" can follow in their footsteps with these activities! - Jess

    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

    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

    Travel with Ms. Frizzle and her class through the land of microscopy with this lab kit. This kit includes the things that young researchers need to explore the world of tiny things – microscope, blank slides, cover slips, tweezers, collecting vial, 20 colorful experiment and instruction cards, prepared slides of fungi and algae, and a data notebook for recording your own scientific observations all packaged in a cool Magic School Bus-shaped box. The microscope operates on 2 AA batteries (not included) and is made of plastic with 100, 300 and 600x magnification. Although that sounds powerful, this is still a toy and doesn't give the quality and clarity of higher priced microscopes. I spent some time looking at the prepared slides and had some difficulty with the viewing on 600x but got a pretty good view with the 100 and 300x settings. Overall this is a good starter set for beginning to explore with Ms. Frizzle. - Donna
