Crystals, Rocks & Minerals (Kids First Level 3)
Young scientists can explore a variety of geology topics in this all-in-one kit. The 32-page illustrated manual outlines 18 different experiments, and all science lab supplies that they need to complete them are included. They'll learn about geodes while molding and growing their own and discover crystal shapes and how they form while growing three different kinds of crystals. 13 rock and mineral specimens aid learning about rock identification and the characteristics of igneous, sedimentary and metamorphic rocks.
Unearth the secrets of geology as you dig deep into the science of rocks and minerals and the crystals that form them. Through 18 hands-on experiments, kids ages eight and up will discover some pretty amazing things about geology, mineralogy, and crystal growing.
Become a geologist-in-training as you mold your own crystal geode and grow three different types of crystals that vary in color and shape. Work with real mineral specimens to learn how to determine a minerals chemical properties such as color, luster, streak color, hardness, density, magnetic properties, and carbon, sulfur, or iron content and use your findings to identify unknown minerals. As you explore, youll get an overview of the geologic rock cycle and discover how the three main categories of rock igneous, sedimentary, and metamorphic are formed, altered, destroyed, and formed again.
Whether youre a geology enthusiast already, or just discovering this rocking science for the first time, Kids First: Crystals, Rocks & Minerals makes for an unforgettable and fun educational experience.
This great new series is for your youngest engineers and scientists. Level 1 is for ages 3 to 5, and level 2 is for 5 to 7. This is a brand new line for Thames and Kosmos and is intended to introduce young learners to science and math concepts while also developing fine motor skills and visual/spatial reasoning. At level 1, the building is accompanied by an engaging storybook (24 pages in length), pretend play, and simple activities. The activities reflect the content of the story line and use chunkier building pieces that are great for smaller hands. Each kit comes nicely packaged in a durable storage container.
Level 2 takes children to the next level of science there are no storybooks, but a detailed 48-page, illustrated guide book comes in every kit. These kits introduce children to the scientific method and teach science basics using hands-on experiments. Level 2 kits do not have a storage container.
