Clifford Animal Science by The Young Scientists Club

clifford-animalscience-235Rarely do I find so many quality language and science learning activities in one little box! The Young Scientists Club invites children 3 and up to joining Clifford the Big Red Dog and pal Emily to perform 14 fun experiments, learning about animal science. Not only do kids learn the language of general science like lab tray, measuring and magnifying but also vocabulary specific to animal study–habitats, animal tracks, fossils, bugs, camouflage, life cycle, carnivores and more.What do you see in the habitat? Is it wet or dry? is followed by an “Explanation” section which provides parents with great topics for further discussion located at the bottom of the activity page.  My little friends loved the activities which included putting reusable stickers on the window of the 6 habitats while placing associated animals in them, mixing and making edible play dough to cast an animal track, creating  their own fossils, hiding cut-out animals for camouflage hide and seek, discovering the inside of an egg, making a bird feeder and habitat diorama. Most of the props and ingredients are included in the box which makes moms happy. After a few experiments, my friend declared, “I want to do more science!” Isn’t that just what we want to hear as language skills are exercised in learning new concepts and vocabulary, making predictions and observing changes through experiments?
