What are the four keys to life for plants and animals? Sprout seeds, dissect an animal pellet and build an animal home to find out. Keys to Life is a Wonder level Science Unlocked curriculum kit that dives into an exploration of living things in our ecosystem and their needs. This is an excellent hands-on curriculum, with fun science experiments for your budding biologist!

In this kit, unlock the four keys to life. Your young learner will determine the right amount of water for seeds to sprout. They will also dissect an owl pellet to begin their understanding of animal diet. Keys to Life comes with a full-color Student Curriculum Workbook and Teacher Guide. An inquiry-based approach fully engages students in the phenomenon of plant and animal needs. Step-by-step instructions for all activities allow students independence in their learning, allowing educators to assist rather than direct learning. As part of a special program from Home Science Tools, this Wonder level kit will provide over 7 hours of learning with animal and plant science activities, educating your student in the needs and survival of living things.

In this kit, the student will engage in these fun activities:

  1. Observe an ecosphere
  2. Test different amounts of water to see how much a seed needs to sprout and germinate
  3. Dissect an owl pellet
  4. Design and build animal homes
  5. Learn about photosynthesis and plant life cycles

Use "Keys to Life" to answer questions such as:

  • What do plants and animals need to survive?
  • Do all animals eat the same things?
  • How do plants get food?
  • What environment does a plant or animal live in? 

Open this exciting earth science kit to immerse yourself and your young children on a nature walk to explore our natural world! Learn about the life cycle of different plants and animals in their ecosystems through a variety of cool science projects!
