Join Sam as he explores mineral and rock formation, the rock cycle, mineral identification, the Mohs hardness scale and famous rocks around the world. Each kit contains a teaching manual, a student workbook, a rocks and minerals journal for each child to complete, field guide, mineral testing kit, rock samples, display box and supplies for a fun art activity. "Science, art, history and geography are integrated into each unique kit, giving children a much broader understanding. The kits are ready-to-use and parents do not have to gather obscure supplies,” Michelle Eichhorn, owner of Treasure Box Press, told TDmonthly. "Children seem to gravitate toward rocks. They enjoy filling their pockets with any unusual rock they find. After this kit, they'll be able to identify their finds as igneous, metamorphic or sedimentary. What better way to learn?"

Kids can learn where the “margin” is located in a pond habitat. They can study pond life from the water cycle to water-skimming insects. The water testing kit lets them determine the pH of the water and measure the presence of nitrogen and ammonia. Seeds and a potting mix are included so that children can discover why the carbon dioxide cycle is important to life on Earth. A step-by-step mock dissection includes a plastic frog and his inner organs. There are 14 activities in all. A Pond Life Field Guide is also included. “It’s really neat to see the inside of the frog,” said 10-year-old Alexa Hughes. She also enjoyed planting the flowers. “This was a great learning tool,” commented her homeschooling mom, Shawna. “Any excuse to get wet is good,” added Lynn Costine, another homeschooling mother.
