I couldn't agree more with my kids that Science is so much fun! Now I will admit that sometimes teaching your kids all about the how's and whys of science can seem like a huge daunting task but it doesn't have to be! Why as of recently, I've been teaching my four year old daughter the wonders and ways of magnetism, thanks to a great new science activity set from Learning Resources! First thing to know is that the Primary Science Magnet Set from Learning Resources is geared toward children ages 4-12 years old. The set comes with 10 double sided activity cards, an extremely helpful guide, and lots of other eye catching items (14 total) that have kept my daughter quite engaged in learning and exploring the many different ways magnets work. A few of the activities we tried out where the Amazing Maze, in which the key concept was that magnets can retain their magnetic force through other objects. My daughter took the large yellow magnet in the set on moved it around underneath the leaf maze to move both of the included ladybugs! She totally was intrigued and having a lot of fun. The next activity we did together was the Floating Magnets, in which we used the four round magnets and the long pole. This activity taught my daughter all about how magnets can attract and repel! She was very fascinated by everything that we did and has learned with the set with me during our schooling time and has enjoyed playing with it many times all on her own. My four year old loves to tinker so this set has been a wonderful educational tool in our home giving her the freedom to explore in learning all about polarity, attraction, and repulsion in fun hands on way! I highly recommend The Primary Science Magnet Set for any home or school classroom. The set is colorful, durable, engaging, and encourages kids to be hands on in learning new things!
I really like this product so far. We've only been using it with our daughter for a few weeks. The only complaint I have so far is I wish there would be a couple of the round magnets in each color with sad faces as she doesn't always deserve a awesome or super smiley face and she is a bit ocd so leaving it blank is an issue for her.
