Review:

The GeoSafari Jr. Jungle Crew Lab Set by Educational Insights is a fun and approachable science set for the child just becoming interested in science and how things work. The equipment tools included (a rhino flask, hippo tongs, elephant funnel, a lion and a cub test tubes, and a monkey dropper) are chunky enough for young hands to easily grasp and hold. The test tubes sit in "paw" stands.

The spiral bound easy-to-follow instruction booklet offers illustrated instructions to complete ten age appropriate scientific experiments. You'll know what you'll need, what you'll learn, and conversation prompts to follow up. Most of the experiments need materials to complete but the materials needed are easily found in your kitchen (such as paper towels, tin foil, and food coloring).

We talked about what we observed, the kids questioned what they didn't understand, and we even created a few of our own experiments (such as seeing how fast sugar melts in water compared to salt). We had fun with all this learning.
