This elementary-level kit has the lab materials you'll need for doing the projects in Apologia's Exploring Creation with Astronomy (2nd Edition). Explore the sun, stars, and solar system with fun hands-on activities like demonstrating an eclipse and making a rocket. You provide some more common household items.
This kit does not contain materials for the optional "extra" experiments referenced in the textbook and student notebook. Those items are available from Apologia directly.
Note: This kit is intended for parent/teacher use to complete curriculum lab activities with students. It includes items that are not designed or intended primarily for children ages 12 and under.
