[NEW] AMBER SCIENCE EXPLORATION KIT!
Why is amber so important to scientists? How does it help them to discover more about our world during prehistoric periods? This Tanglewood Hollow science kit will help you learn all that and more!
This hands-on kit allows families to polish real amber specimens to see if there is any matter within! Use the gemstone-quality sandpaper to gently create a flat edge, or window, on your specimens so that you can peek inside! Each kit also features a model of amber-like resin with an insect encased for you to display in your nature collection and to extend your learning (they're great for use with a microscope!)

MEET MY LEAF [A NEW FREEBIE!]
Strengthen observation skills and descriptive writing with this simple activity that helps children to make friends with an autumn leaf!
Go on a nature ramble and collect autumn leaves together! Have children choose one special leaf to study- looking for details such as color, shape, size, number of points, and any other distinguishing details. Encourage children to look for interesting details!
Children can then use this simple activity sheet to complete the information and glue their special leaf to! Some people even like to add googly eyes!
Why do nature study? Nature study cultivates a love of investigation. From the time children become mobile, they thoroughly investigate whatever captures their interest. Investigation plays a major role in scientific thinking, and nature study is a great way to encourage that love of searching for answers. In nature study, the children can ask their own questions about what they see and then start on a quest for the answers to those questions.
