One Year Worth of Hands-on Science Fun (Kit 1): Astronomy, Birds, Magnetism
My children get so absorbed and intrigued with these fun hands-on science lessons that they never want to stop. Specifically created for homeschool use, each kit contains all the materials you will need for every project, plus a 100+ page write-in lesson pack (reproducible), a parent's guide to help you explain your children's explorations, an answer key, plus all the materials needed to do the projects. This is instant—no parent preparation! Another great thing about these fine science kits is that they hold the interest of an 8th grader just as easily as a 1st grader, so you can teach science to all your children at once. If you do science once a week, these large kits include enough for one school year's worth of hands-on science lessons. I like to expand the topic into a unit study with library books. Science is fun!

Astronomy Adventure will lead your family through discovery of the night sky and the solar system. You even get to make artificial gravity! Includes a pair of sturdy binoculars too.
Discovering Birds combines lessons on observing birds with investigations into how birds fly and how they see. You'll make a bird feeder and a real working pen from a feather, plus more. Comes with a colorful 32 page photo guide to backyard birds.
The Magnetism Adventure covers magnetism from "opposite poles attract" to mapping magnetic fields, electromagnets and making your own motor. Contains super-strong latch magnets, bar magnets, and even the battery to make your motor run. Included in the kit is enough equipment for two children to work together through the 40 lessons and projects.
