Lab Kit for Exploring the Building Blocks of Science Book 3
Have you ever used Building Blocks of Science and wished you had a prebuilt lab kit with the supplies you needed instead of going out and getting the items yourself? Have you thought about using Building Blocks of Science but felt intimidated by searching several stores to gather all of the lab supplies? 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 3.
The lab kit contains over 30 items you are not likely to have around the house. You will still need to gather a few things from around the house, like a few standard office supplies, some kitchen items, balls, 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 warehouse shelf. 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 leaves out a handful of optional items that you may want to purchase if you choose to complete certain experiments. (Please see the lists under the Details section.)
Note: 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.
Use as experiments come up in your science course.
