Groovy Lab in a Box: A Science Kit That Includes EVERYTHING!

My kids absolutely love doing science experiments – and so do I! What we don’t love is having to find all the needed supplies, and forgetting something, and then not actually doing the experiment because we didn’t pick up the last supply at the store.

That’s why I was SO excited to find out about Groovy Lab in a Box! They have everything – and I mean everything – you need to complete a science experiment, all in one convenient package!

From the website…

“Groovy Lab in a Box includes everything you need to complete all activities, inquiry experiments, tests, and engineering design challenges. Including the basics. You never have to go looking for popsicle sticks or straws or pipe cleaners ever again. If the activity, experiment, test, challenge, or inquiry requires a specific tool or supply, it’s in the box!”

I love that! No more hunting the house trying to find something that will work – because it all magically arrives on your doorstep! Go here to read more about what’s inside each box.

Not only that, but you can choose to have one groovy lab box mailed to you (hurry, they’re going fast!) or you can sign up for a subscription plan!

Four Great Television Shows that Allow Kids to Experience History

I shared before ways that our family brings history to life with our children.  We love to experience history through hands-on experiences, field trips, and co-ops. However, often times there is not a feasible way to accomplish this. When this is the case, we turn to television to bring history to life. Here are four great television shows that have helped our children experience history.

Liberty’s Kids: This show is fantastic, really! My girls have learned so much through this show. It takes your children to the time period of the Revolutionary War. While watching it they will meet people from history like George Washington, Benjamin Franklin, Phyllis Wheatley and more. They will also be taken back into time and experience the Boston Tea Party, Battle of Bunker Hill, The First Independence Day, and many other occurrences during that time period.

Dear America: These videos are based on the Scholastic books and tell the fictional stories of girls living during various time periods in American History. The stories are told as if the girls were writing in their diaries about their experiences. Some of the time periods addressed include sailing on the Mayflower, the Mexican American War, and the Civil Rights Movement.

How The States Got Their Shapes:  My husband and I enjoy watching this show with our kids. It takes you through our country state by state. You learn interesting facts about each state and its borders in a fun way. It is a fun way to learn geography and state history at the same time!

Learn Our History: These DVDs were created by Mike Huckabee and take students back in time to see U. S. History in the making. There are 35 DVDs in the series and they include the Mayflower, World War II, The Cold War, Election Day information, Civil Rights, and many more great videos!

{I have watched many episodes from each of these shows, but use your own discretion when viewing with your children.}

What shows would you recommend to help children experience history?
