I really liked this kit. It’s so great to have everything ready. The teacher manual resource is excellent. I liked having an observation handout for the ocean acidification experiment. The priority for me is that the children have background and theory from the teacher (which is clearly provided in the teacher manual) and that they have a hands-on experience. All the activities in this kit allow for that, so 10 stars. It is also nice for the children to record their learning. Worksheets are much less exciting, but I like them so that the children are able to go back to them for reference and as evidence of achieving the Science Capabilities. Great balance :-)
