Here’s the Box Breakdown
Everything that we received in our Science Unboxed Subscription
So what is all this stuff?
Our box inserts. This month’s lesson is “Pressure” and there is a booklet with activities and information to go over with your child as well as a sheet with all the included items
This page explains what pressure is.
This page has an activity that allows children to easily measure pressure!
The final pages have some mini experiments you can complete at home
There was a little orange goodie bag included in our box that contained some fun little extras, one of which was this cute little turtle! Perfect little bath toy!
Another goodie bag extra was this green slime. All the kids love slime right now and … it’s scientifical!!
This little squishy spiny ball can be dangled from the handle or just tossed around. The kids liked this
Who doesn’t love stamps!
This one has books on it!
Pressure Robot Kit
This kit has all the items needed to create either an air or water pressured robot
It comes with a detailed pamphlet that offers a few types of robot to create
It also explains how and why this pressure robot works
This reminded us exactly like something kids would get in Science class. The blocks were high quality and the pamphlet was very thorough.
This is the inchworm robot which is the one that we’ve done for you guys
But there’s also a dinosaur (which has a harder difficulty rating). This is great because it means you can include younger and older kids in on this activity
The girls are bugging me to create the dinosaur .. so as always check our Instagram
The final project is “Robotic Arms” and is the most challenging of the three in this booklet
Our bag of blocks!
Okay so now what?
The girls really love these boxes and couldn’t wait to get in there and do some experimenting. We started out with the pressure booklet
We traced Penny’s foot (although it said to trace both)
Then we’re instructed to count the blocks and divide our weight by that number
Leaving us with this as our pressure
Next we built our robot
We started out by building these three forms
Then we arrange and connect them
After that we flip it over and add a few extra blocks with our rotating joints
We then add our eyes
The next step is to connect the injectors to the structure
And finally attaching the hose to our inchworm robot. You can push the injector to make the robot move. The kids thought this was so cool. It was in motion when we took this – which is why it’s blurry!
So in summary
We look for three things in a subscription box; quality, curation, and presentation. The Science Unboxed Subscription is created by educators so you can be sure you are getting curriculum quality experiments that will give you and your child great educational, bonding time! The presentation is great, we love the pamphlets and everything arrives perfectly. The quality is awesome. The blocks for the robot are really nice and Oliver just likes building with them so far in general! Curation is wonderful… not only do they include the hands on experiment but they also include the pamphlet that connects the lesson as well as the little fun extras which make it great for a kiddo to unbox!
