Kids always learn easier when they’re engaged in a hands-on activity that helps them learn the subject matter. Science kits have the ability to fascinate kids with all of the opportunities to learn and explore that they contain.
The POOF Slinky Scientific Explorer kit will allow your child to have a science lab learning experience right in his own home. There are many engaging activities that he can do alone, depending on his age.
Some ages might need a parent’s help when it comes to reading instructions. Since the kit is geared towards kids four and up, you’ll want to be near to offer guidance for those who are that young.
Two of the popular experiments in this kit are the creation of a sunset within a test tube and the life-like actions of a volcano. Besides learning fun experiments, a child will get to understand how science works.
The kit helps make some more difficult classroom science topics easy to understand. By giving a child a hands-on approach in a relaxed atmosphere, your child can excel in his science studies.
Instead of just memorizing dry facts, your child will get to be front and center in all of the activities. He’ll get to use scientific methods to test a hypothesis. These experiments have been tested for their outcome and for age appropriateness.
Your child will get to discover how chemical reactions work, how to test a theory, how to examine crystals and more. Contained within the kit are 11 experiments – each one guaranteed to interest your child.
The guide that comes with the kit offers detailed instructions on how to handle the experiments in a step-by-step manner. The kit comes with many of the materials that you’ll need for your child to start experimenting.
You’ll get baking soda, citric acid and red cabbage juice. The three color tablets included are what helps the volcano experiment change colors. Also included are cotton swabs, test tubes, plastic cups and two sticks.
You’ll also receive measuring spoons, cornstarch, vegetable oil and the instruction booklet. There are some items that you’ll need to provide to make sure the experiments are a success.
You’ll want to have on hand plenty of paper towels for cleanup, coffee filters, water and flour. You’ll need a plate or a tray for building the volcano on. Since your child will want to show off the volcano, you might want to pick up a plastic one that you can use for future experiments, too.
By learning at home – such things as the variety of acids – your child will have a step up on his educational learning while he’s having fun experimenting. And the best part is, he won’t even consider it educational – just fun!
