Scientists and Inventors Kit
Children encounter many scientific concepts while building with blocks: properties of objects, motion, energy, cause and effect, force, systems, and patterns and relationships. They also engage in the scientific process: questioning, theorizing, constructing models, testing, predicting, modifying, measuring, classifying, and describing.
This kit includes blocks and construction parts to stimulate scientific thinking and design technology with a focus on simple machines and motion investigation. The accompanying guide presents a series of design challenges for children ages 3 to 8. The guide is aligned with the Head Start Child Outcomes Framework and the National Science Education Standards.
Includes complete sets of the following:
- Cubes, Bobbins, Beams (2 complete sets)
- Curvilinear (2 complete sets)
- 1 round turntable
- Teacher's Guide CDs
