My little homeschooler’s LOVE Science and hands-on activities. They LOVE the Dr. Cool Kit’s so this one was just haunting them every day that I made them wait until I had time to sit down and video the fun. So on to the video:
As you can tell they had so much fun. I sped it up and cut some out because it really is something they enjoy for a while. They used the magnifying glass to inspect as they went along. They learned some tricks on how to use the tool better from big sister and my 7-year-old discovered that it was easier when it was wet too so you see him getting it wet with the brush while little brother was digging in. They love their gems and carry them around in their pockets to show everyone. As they were excavating their gems I was reading to them from the Adventure guide about the stories and information related to their particular gems and then we read about other ones. “Wow, we never want to own the Hope Diamond,”said my youngest son. Not that we could ever buy it anyhow, ROFLOL. Then when they finished digging out their gems they read more from the Adventure guide about the gems that go along with the different months and then started into the Activity guide, looking for the hidden objects and more.
Thanks again Dr. Cool for another fun, educational and hands-on kit! We had an awesome time spending our day excavating gems inside after coming in from playing in the snow. You can buy your own Dr. Cool kit Here: https://www.discoverwithdrcool.com/ and on Amazon.
