The award-winning Know Yourself Adventure Series is a fun-filled monthly journey of self-discovery. Every delivery teaches a new system of the body with games, experiments, and activities the whole family will enjoy. Families will not only explore a system of the body, they’ll also “visit” a country – learning about culture, important leaders, and world history.
We were able to preview the first three adventures. (They’re all fantastic!)
As a teacher turned homeschooling parent, I am always looking for learning opportunities that are cross-curricular. The Know Yourself Adventure Series incorporates science, reading, writing, social studies, geography, art, cooking, etc. into one engaging curriculum. As kids work their way through the monthly activities, they are using so many skills – deepening their overall understanding AND keeping them fully engaged.
The monthly kits are high-interest and perfectly geared towards the intended audience. Ideally suited for kids in grades 1-6, the series teaches kids about themselves through experiments, hands-on activities, sensory experiences, comics, and plenty of other tactile activities. This is the perfect curriculum for a child (or a teacher!) who is tired of worksheets, textbooks, and standard fill-in-the-blank activities. It is refreshing to find a company so dedicated to presenting information in ways that appeal to young learners. Kids so often get bogged down by “traditional” methods and activities and either stop paying attention or miss out on the JOY of learning. The Know Yourself Adventure Series puts the fun back in learning.
My third grader and 5th grader couldn’t wait to dive into the adventures! Every detail inside the monthly kit is appealing and intriguing.
They loved all of the hands-on learning included in the kit. I loved that they were learning about their senses by using them!! (And everything was included! Talk about a time-saver for parents and home-educators!!)
The experiments are super cool and fun for the WHOLE family! (I had just as much fun as the kids!) I loved that my preschooler and kindergartner were also engaged -able to participate in the experiments and other hands-on elements of the kit.
The kits are also fantastically organized and planned. I love that each adventure kit provides you with a suggested schedule – making it easy to fit this into existing homeschool curriculum. You can break the kit up into four weeks of study, or move at a more rapid pace. It’s that flexible and that easy to implement.
