Bluestem, LLC - Naturalist in a Box
Here you can see what comes with your kit. Inside you'll find the contents of the animal or birds dinner! Make it a fun learning experience and bring this kit out for a picnic -- compare what the animal/bird eats with what you and your kids are eating! This is a great time to introduce how creatures eat too -- beaks, paws, spearing, slashing, etc. What a fun way for kids to learn something tangible AND foster stewardship in their little hearts, providing slowly, for a better future!
There are all sorts of ways to learn with Bluestem LLC Naturalist kits! You can play matching games with the younger kiddos while telling them what the featured animal (in this case, bird, the Whooping Crane) eats. You can use the sheet in the report cover to polish your own knowledge and give the highlights to older kids.
One thing I like about this kit in particular is that the kids get a cuddly plush. Some of the kits feature molded plastic toys as the main event. Still others have a plush and then flash cards for the learning tools. I really like the combination of cuddle and durable with this kit. There are so many kits to choose from -- these would make a great addition to a homeschooling curriculum OR just a way to supplement your childs' learning with a fun family activity!
