My children LOVE science experiments and beg to do them! They learn more and retain it better hands on. The experiments are separated and labeled by lessons. All my children crowd around. Had I the money I would have ordered 6 separate astronomy labs, so they could each have their own. Yes, one can buy items cheaper else where, individually. If you love shopping & know where to look save money. I have an over-whelming schedule, have never enjoyed shopping, cannot keep prices / places straight. I tried one year to purchase the items on my own... Result we skipped labs, children did not learn as much and were sad. Having organized experiments is WELL WORTH the little extra money. (I went to 4 stores one time hunting for one item for a desired experiment... Never did find the item) this kit is so much less stress!! (One child does not like botany this is why I would order more of these)
I am so beyond happy with this purchase! Everything we need is divided in separate bags for each lesson, it's grab and go! After looking through the contents I realized how much time and money I saved buying this preorganized kit. I do not have to rush all over town with three kids under 6 in tow trying to find each little item for the week's lab. Sure, you MIGHT find some of these items at a cheaper cost, but the amount of gas you'll use driving to many different stores and the hassle of wrangling children the whole time quickly exceeds what this kid costs. So much stress and (again) time has been saved going this route! My husband and I were both very very impressed and look forward to a stress free year of science. You will not regret buying this kit, that I can promise you!
In love. 100%, worth every penny! We have been homeschooling for 4 years now, k-3. I have always felt our science could used a boost. I tried apologia out as a "summer school session" for my girls. This is it...everyone is thrilled! I will be using apologia from here on out. The kit is a must have. Best science kit we have ever had...complete and orderly!
I know I would never do most of the Apologia science experiments if I had to gather all the supplies myself. This looks like it will be such a time saver. It includes just about every single item I will need to complete the experiments with my kids. What I especially appreciate is that they are all neatly stored in individual zip-loc bags, labeled for each experiment. So, when it's time to do an experiment, all I need to do is take out the bag for that lesson and we're ready! Now I have no excuse to not do the experiments. I think we will have a fun school year with science this year!
