Lab Kit for Exploring the Building Blocks of Science Book 6
Have you ever used Building Blocks of Science and wished you had a prebuilt lab kit with all of the supplies you needed instead of having to go out and get the items yourself? Have you thought about using Building Blocks of Science, but felt intimidated by having to search several stores to gather all of the lab supplies? Whether you’ve been one of these people, or are just now finding Building Blocks of Science, you’ll be happy to know that you can now make your life easier, and save a ton of time by purchasing the lab supply kit that correlates to the experiments in Building Blocks of Science 6.

The lab kit contains 34 items you may not, or likely would not, have around the house. You will still need to gather a few things from around the house, like a few common office supplies, some kitchen items, etc. You may also have to buy food items, but trust us, this is a good thing. You do not want a kit shipped to your house full of fresh fruits, vegetables, and cheese that has been sitting on a shelf waiting for months and months for just the right family to adopt it. That would be a lab experiment unto itself by the time it arrived, and you may find yourself needing to move just to get away from the smell. So you may have to pick up some perishable items if you don’t have them in your pantry already. However, for the things you would have to pick up at the craft store, hobby store, and/or superstore, this handy kit has virtually all of them in just the quantities you’ll need to complete your experiments. This kit also does not include a handful of optional items that you won't find in your home, so if you do choose to complete those experiments or parts of experiments, you'll need to pick those up.

Please keep in mind, however, that this kit is designed to be used by a parent or teacher with a child. It is not intended for use by children 12 and under unsupervised. Plus, you’ll have so much fun, why wouldn’t you want to join in?

    Great kit

    Includes everything you need but probably won’t have just lying around your house. Super convenient!

    You still need a microscope...

    This kit is great, but doesn't include a microscope which is needed for the curriculum. Nor does it mention that you will need one, which was a bummer of a surprise. Maybe let readers know that the curriculum does require one for some of the experiments!

    Amelia,

    Thank you for taking the time to leave your review! We are sorry for your disappointment! After reading your review, we took another look at our write-up online and realized that we had not been as clear about what was or was not included in the lab kit as we wished we had been. For that, I sincerely apologize.
    The maker of the Lab Kits has omitted some of the more 'optional' items to help reduce costs, but families who want to be able to complete ALL of the experiments will need to purchase some of the more exclusive items.
    I hope this makes sense. We have since gone out and added some clarification to our website so families can now purchase with a more precise understanding of what is included and what is omitted. Again, I apologize for the frustration we caused and thank you for taking the time to leave this feedback.

    -- Hope for the Timberdoodle Team

    Very Interesting

    My daughter loves doing these experiments. She’s always begging me to let her due her science curriculum.
