Stepping into Science - Experiment Manual Sample Pages (PDF)

When it comes to science for young children, nothing beats the convenience of an all-in-one kit. The ability to grab a box and do science is a huge blessing. With Stepping into Science's wide assortment of 25 experiments, your young children will study biology, physics, chemistry, air, and water. They will learn what germination is and that not all plants spread by seeds. They will discover how air pressure indicates weather and what makes a magnifying glass magnify. They will understand how a suction cup works, why soap bubbles are round, and so much more. With full-color, down-to-earth pictorial instructions and straightforward text, even an inexperienced home-educating parent is sure to succeed. To a young child, science is not a subject, but an adventure. A "Parent's Choice Seal of Approval" award winner, the Stepping into Science all-in-one kit nourishes that impression without any additional busywork for mom. Apart from a handful of household items such as water and vinegar, everything you need is included.

This starter kit covers five topics, teaching science fundamentals through 25 experiments, while at the same time introducing children to the concept and process of experimentation.

The simple instructions included in the kit rely heavily on illustrations, with just enough text to reinforce vocabulary and aid in language learning.

    Quickie Science February 7, 2012
    Reviewer: Susan Williamson from Lothian, MD United States  
    I am a doctor married to a mathematician. Thus, science is important to us. I wanted an easy way to introduce science concepts to our children (7, 5, 3 and 1) but without spending a lot of money on items that they will lose or destroy. This little kit fit the bill. While simplistic in explanation, the concepts are presented in ways easy for young children to understand, making it a perfect place to start a conversation about that scientific principle, and the experiments are quick and easy; we did several a day and tore through the kit in nothing flat.

    Easy, convenient, fun September 27, 2011
    Reviewer: Bethany Porter from NC, United States  
    I bought this to use for our kindergarten science.  There are 25 experiments, so I had planned on doing one about every week or so and getting extra books from the library based on the experiment of the week.  My five year old daughter loves them, though, so some days we do more than just one.  They are very simple, and the instructions aren't exactly in depth, but that's basically what I was looking for--a brief, fun introduction to numerous science concepts.  I also love the convenience of having everything in one kit, all put together.

    Great little science kit October 5, 2010
    Reviewer: Misty Marr from Buckeye, AZ United States  
    This kit is a great way to have all that you need at your finger tips.  They are fun experiments that will allow your young children to get some science experience.  Some of the pieces do seem to be cheaply made, but most of is is disposable, anyways. The price may seem high for the individual pieces that you get, but the convenience that it provides, plus the instruction and supplies for a wide variety of projects makes it well worth it.  I know that I  would not do most of the projects without having had the kit.  I recommend the kit!
