Science is a subject that I never really cared for. I love math and reading, but with science, I get bored. However, I have three kids who need me to teach them science for school. What am I supposed to do?

Science Unlocked is a new program that allows hands-on learning with everything you need in one box for a unit study. There are three levels of learning, Wonder (K-2), Accelerate, and Launch.
Today, I want to talk to you about the Wonder level, The next two days, I will talk about the other two levels, so make sure you come back to check out the others!
An Introduction to Squishy Science – Wonder Level
The Wonder Level is for grades K-2 and each box comes with almost everything you need to complete the experiments. You only really need to just add water. This is perfect for parents like me who don’t usually have the fun supplies available to do the experiments.
The Teacher’s Guide has an optional planning guide to work through the unit. Each activity and learning opportunity is broken down with the time required. Squishy Science will take approximately 6+ hours and 17 days to complete. You can work on changing this up and spreading this out to make this take longer.
While the Teacher’s Guide gives the basics for each lesson, the Student Workbook gives the child all the instructions on what to do for each lesson and experiment. There are color pictures and easy-to-follow instructions. Baby Girl is 6 and was able to do most of the steps by herself with a little help from me. She really loved the independence of learning.
What Did We Learn?
Squishy Science helped give Baby Girl an introduction to the properties and states of matter. She was able to get hands-on experience with how matter can change. We were able to talk about our senses and how they can help us with the physical property of matter. There were fun experiments that helped to form this connection of what she was learning to what she was making. And with things like slime and oobleck, where can you go wrong with science?
What We Thought
Baby Girl loved her science lessons with Science Unlocked and Squishy Science. She had so much fun getting dirty and learning new things about the things she was already interested in. I loved that everything was there and was easy for us to understand. The Squishy Science kit is $36.99 and with all the supplies, I find that very worth it. We were able to use this for a full month of science lessons. We also had the fun slime, stress ball, and other fun experiments that we could play with for days after the lesson was completed.
If you are looking for a fun science unit that will allow your younger students to get their hands into the learning without you running all over for supplies, Squishy Science from the Science Unlocked series is just what you are looking for!
