I love the fact that they have a list that tells you everything you will need to get the full experience. There were lots of ways where there was writing involved but it was in such a way that was appealing. I especially liked the dying fabric with the extracted pigments from the veggies and fruits. Over all is was an easy to follow and very exciting unit lesson to do!
We’re so glad you like it! Dying fabric was one of our favorites as well. Thank you!
This is a very fun way to learn about veggies and fruits. I love the experiments in here, especially the one on extracting pigments. It’s easy and keeps the kids happy and interested. Another thing that was appealing was the way that they taught the different words and the handwriting sheets. Over all I love this!!
Thanks for the review! The extracting pigments is one of my favorites as well, I’m glad you like it as well.
