Homeschooling is a whole new world to me, but something we decided to dive into for the remainder of the school year, since our move. One thing I noted right away is my children are hands-on learners, and really hands-on is always a bit more fun the reading through a textbook.
If you’re exploring hands-on learning products for your children there is no place I would recommend for fun and educational value above Learning Resources. The Company's 1100+ high-quality products are sold in more than 80 countries, serving children and their families, preschool, kindergarten, primary, and middle-school markets.
Just in time for our Science lesson we were sent the STEM Magnets! Activity Set, to explore the phenomenon of magnets through real scientific experimentation! The set includes: 2 bar magnets, 2 magnetic bugs, 4 ring magnets, horseshoe magnet, magnetic post, 2 snap-on cars, tray with maze, string, and 10 double-sided activity cards.
Get started, explore, and learn by grabbing an activity card which gives you a real-life problem that requires real scientific reasoning to solve. For example we determined, using bumper cars and magnets, which cars are drawn to each other and which you should avoid contact with. Learning the answer to the question "Do like magnetic poles of a bar magnet attract or repel each other?" in a hands-on interactive way.
Each activity card gives you step by step instruction to conduct your experiments and learn if your hypothesis was correct. With the STEM Magnets! Activity set children are encouraged to focus, use logic, and dive into scientific learning and STEM education.
