This is the first apologia science kit we've purchased. I am very impressed on the organization. You receive the items already bundled and labeled according to the lesson(Lesson#1 will have a sticker on the outside of the ziplock bag with all the items listed, and it will tell you if you need to supply an item, and it will say" found in Lesson 3, for example if it's used for more than one lesson. I will be buying astronomy next year, and I will purchase the kit with it as well! I've had other moms tell me they too believed the kit was worth buying. It will save you time and frustration, It seems like a lot of money, and it is, but it made doing the experiments so enjoyable!
I was very happy with this product. Truthfully, I a tend to be a lazy person when it comes to gathering materials to do science experiments. I think experiments are worthwhile, I just don't feel like looking for all the materials. This science kit has done the majority of all that work for me. Not to mention, they have it all bagged up by lessons. I do have to provide some things, but the majority of those things I actually have in the house. So the convenience this kit provides is worth the money, in my opinion.
I LOVE THIS! I am not a natural lover of science and certainly not science experiments! I used to skip science experiments because of the time spent hunting down all the needed items and having to buy huge quantities of things when I only needed one or two. This kit eliminates all of that! Everything needed is right there and neatly packaged into ziplock bags so that you don't have to search for necessary items. It's also easy to just have the kids do it themselves since everything they need is right there! Totally worth the price! I would absolutely buy this product again!
Q: Colored Pencils Included? The photo shows that the colored pencils are included for Lesson 2, but the Lab Kit list doesn't show that they are. Can you confirm whether or not the pencils are included? Thank you.
A: Yes, the Colored Pencils are included and are at the end of the list under "Miscellaneous Supply Kit".
Q: How many kits should I buy? I am teaching Grade 4, 6 and k this year. It's my first year, I love the idea of the kit, but am unsure if they can 'share' to do the experiments together, or do they each need one? Help!! :)
A: Most of the experiments can be done together or enough materials are provided for multiple students. There are a few projects which you may need to supply additional items for.
