Biology Lab (Kids First Level 3)
Children are naturally curious about the world around them, and as parent teachers, we want to capitalize on this curiosity. Through this introductory microscope kit children will be introduced to the fascinating world that is unseen by the natural eye. Accompanying this set is a 32-pg. instruction manual providing step-by-step instructions, tips, background information and explanations for a wide array of experiments. Activities include getting familiar with the microscope and microscope basics, plant cells, cells in the cross-section, animal cells and "guinea pigs", and many others designed to give children an overview of the possibilities in the world of microscopic science. Kit includes 1 prepared slide, 4 blank slides, cover slips, tweezers, needle, pipette, 2 sample containers, petri dish with lid, and a microscope. The microscope ocular lens is adjustable 4x to 15x magnification power, which when combined with the included 3 objective lens will provide a total magnification power of 60x to 600x. It also has a battery powered light. There are a few items that need supplied including 2 AA batteries, a bottle cork, sand or gravel, an onion, aquatic plants, waterweed, pine needles, raw meat and other household items.
You will find this kit provides children with an excellent introduction to the mysterious yet marvelous microscopic world in which we live. ~Deanne
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.
