Science Fun = Summer Learning (and the kids won’t even notice!)

During the summer we sometimes feel like our kids loose some the knowledge that they gained during the school year. I find myself constantly telling my kids to go read a book or work a few pages in their “thinking” workbook. But there are a few, not-so-quiet ways for kids to learn during the summer and they won’t even realize that they are finding out something new.

I designed the Mini Me Geology Rock Detectives line of kits to allow parents to give their kids a fun science kit that not only has large, nice rock and mineral specimens, but has a eBook full of information and ideas to keep your kids busy for hours, rather than in front of the television.

Each kit has 6 or 7  large mineral or rock samples (depending on which kit you purchase), custom hand lens with 3X and 6X magnifications and a 30 page, full color eBook on CD that includes mineral or rock information, sample identification activities, puzzles, coloring pages, experiments, an adventure story writing exercise for your young geology detective, and activities including making a personal geologist’s field notebook and your very own rock collection storage box.

Kids love these kits because of the unique shapes, colors and properties of the mineral and rocks and the activities and experiments in the eBook. The best part about these kits is that you can do the experiments with your kids so you can have a little science fun bonding time!

If you need a suggestion of which kit is best for your child, just shoot me an email and I’ll get right back to you. Click here to download samples of the Rock Detectives eBooks. Here is a little quick guide that might help you decide which kits your kids might love:

Mineral & Crystal Kits – have colorful mineral samples which unique properties, colors and shapes.
Igneous Rock Kit – has rocks made from volcanoes.
