Budding Naturalists® Early Explorer Adventure Kit (Ages 3 - 5)
Developed by educators at Acorn Naturalists, this Budding Naturalist® Adventure Kit is designed to encourage individual interest in science and nature explorations. These kits do not require any formal training and are based on inquiry-learning methods as found in the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS). A perfect way to bring science into the home in an effective and meaningful way, either for families or for schools or nature centers sent to students for distance learning.
The Early Explorer Adventure Kit inspires children ages 3 to 5 (Preschool-K) to explore the world around them (with an adult). This kit includes My Nature Notes® (a 16-page personal journal designed for the very young); Nature Circles® Preschool Activity Cards; the book Backyard Explorer; a Knee-High Nature Quest Fundana® activity scarf; a Sunprint® kit for creating silhouettes of ferns, feathers, and flowers; and a magnifying bug jar.
