Science Activities in a Bag can solve all of these problems for you. They are exciting and easy to do. The ebooks contain instructions, supply lists and detailed instructions on how to assemble each activity bag if you are wanting to organize a "swap" with friends or other homeschooling families. This would be great for coops and homeschooling groups.
This book has examples of 25 experiments to enjoy with your children. In this book, you can: Learn how to determine the temperature using a cricket's chirp, how yeast and sugar can inflate a balloon, how to force a spider to spin a web right in front of your eyes, and more. The first experiment we wanted to try out of this book is entitled "Fungus Amungus". Here you can see the supplies needed for this experiment.
The best part other than actually doing these experiments with my bugs.......
is that many of the items needed for these experiments were already lying around our home.
Science Activities in a Bag - Book 2 - Chemistry, Human Body & General Science is $15.
This book also has 25 experiments. In this book, you can learn how salt makes it harder for water to freeze, how you can hold a flame directly under a balloon and not pop it and how to collect and match fingerprints.
And the one we chose is entitled "Eye Parts". We learned all about the parts of our eyes and their purposes. This came in really handy since my Dad just had cataract surgery.
Science Activities in a Bag - Book 3 - Chemistry is also $15.
This book also has 25 experiments in it. There are so many to choose from but we decided on "Salt Crystals". We are learning how to grow crystals out of salt. Here are the supplies needed for this one:
One metal paper clip, one 8-inch piece of string, one pencil, plastic spoon, 8-10 oz glass of water and salt
We are working on it daily and recording any changes on the experiment log that you print out for each experiment. It is so much fun doing these experiments now that activity bags has made it so easy to do.
