“I hear and I forget
I see and I remember
I do and I understand”
Kids learn best through action. That 3 plus 2 makes 5 is better understood when they get 3 chocolates from Grandma and 2 from Grandpa, making it a pocket full of 5 chocolates!
Whether it’s math, science or geography, when knowledge comes alive through experimentation, play, and through the use of all five senses, it stays with kids for life.
And when ‘action’ comes in the form of a big box full of super fun activities, it’s a bigger motivation to learn! The box we’re talking about is Jungle Magic’s Garden Sciencz, an exciting kit that helps kids learn about plants in a fun, playful way!
Botany, or learning about plants, is a part of school curriculum in India. But instead of learning about soil, roots, seeds, crops, etc. just from books, the activities in Garden Sciencz help our kids cement their knowledge through practical, hands-on experiments.
Garden Sciencz is a single kit that packs everything that our budding botanists will need to start growing small plants in our own home! Plus, it comes with 20 super-fun experiments that help the child learn different aspects of growing plants, in ways that they will never forget!
The Garden Scienz kit contains –
- 7 different types of seeds (Mustard, Wheat, Green Gram, Ragi, Fenugreek, Coriander, and Marigold)
- All the tools required to plant these seeds – 6 small pots, measuring cups, soil pellets, gardening tray, spatula and water dropper
- A mould in the shape of the map of India
- An easy to read and attractive information booklet
The booklet is chock-full of information about various soil types, climates, and vegetation found in India. It also includes step-by-step instructions for planting the 7 types of seeds included in the kit.
Plus, the manual contains instructions on 20 exciting plant-related experiments such as –
- Effect of water temperature on bean expansion
- How plants react to different types of liquids
- How to add color to flower petals
- How you can grow plants from plant cuttings too
By using cute characters like ‘Tomatina the Garden Tomato’ and ‘Sun Shine the sunflower’, the colorful manual teaches kids about plants without looking like a boring science book!
Jungle Magic’s Garden Sciencz is ideal for kids from 7 to 11 years of age. Even if you have younger kids, the activities make for some memorable and enriching parent-child time.
Each kit costs Rs.650. You can visit the site for more details.
The beauty of Garden Sciencz is that in addition to introducing our kids to botany and a bit of geography, it gives them their first taste of one the best hobbies ever – gardening.
Gardening teaches kids about botany, chemistry, and nutrition. More importantly, it teaches them curiosity, patience, responsibility, mindfulness and a life-long love for nature. We can’t think of a better gift than this!
