The Young Scientist Club is a hands-on, build-able science curriculum that is geared for ages from 5 through 12. The units can be used as a whole science curriculum, as an enhancement to your existing curriculum, or as an individual unit study. Here is their current listing of scientific themes they have available:
The kids were so excited when our first kit was shipped! Each kit comes in a water-tight, bubble package with a cute science-themed label so the kids know when a new theme has come in the mail. Upon getting into the kit, I was thrilled to find that this so much FUN! From the moment we started using it, I knew this would remain our science curriculum until we finish all of their kits.
Each kit is fully inclusive; offering a full instruction guide and nearly the entire package of resources needed to perform the guide’s experiments. Each instruction guide provides theme related experiments as well as questions and areas for observations or to record scientific data.
In addition, you can elect to incorporate library books to make each a true, fully inclusive, learning experience. We love to go to the library when we get our new kits! I try to get living books, (per Charlotte Mason) but also reference books. I then weave the living books with the reference books, any printouts I get from the internet, Biblical integration (IE: plants to creation) and the kits experiments into an amazing, fun learning adventure! Young Scientists Club meets perfectly with our eclectic, Christian homeschool!
As a subscriber, you get to choose if you want to start the kits from the first listed theme, or as you choose. You can also elect to have a themed kit shipped once per month or twice a month. We choose to select our themes and to have them shipped monthly. (If you choose to add additional books to the kits as we do, you may find that each kit can last for a couple months!). The curriculum is available at Young Scientist Club and runs $11.99 plus shipping and handling ($4.95) per kit.
