The other day my son Steven received his monthly science box in the mail from Steve Spangler Science. My husband and I are both science teachers and so this apple hasn’t fallen far from our family tree. I teach 5th grade science and my husband is a high school chemistry teacher. We’ve always tried to help him to see how science is all around us and then this past Christmas, our “Elves” sent him a three month subscription to the Spangler science club. Needless to say he was very excited! So we decided to do some of the activities and review the product from both an adult and kid perspective.
The box comes with at least 3 activities based on a central theme. This month’s activities all used synthetic “snow”.
Steven thought it was really cool to see the snow fluff up when you add water, and from a parent and teacher perspective I liked that he was learning about variables and data while he was having fun! We did two of the activities and the then for the third Steven made snowballs and put them into the freezer to make a snowman in a couple of days. We made a short review video (which was a lot of fun itself) about the box. So you can watch it to get a better idea of what we did and how the activities went. Enjoy!
