If you’re like me, each year you find yourself scrambling to come up with holiday gifts to send home with your students. On top of that, when you need 20+ of that holiday gift, your budget is tight. However, I found the perfect solution: Take-Home Math Games and Take-Home Science Experiments.
Each of these take-home kits can be printed out in color or black and white. All you have to do is pack them up in a Ziploc bag, complete with a bag topper and you’re ready!
Why I Love Take-Home Math and Science Gifts:As a teacher, I love anytime I can sneak in a little extra learning disguised as fun! These take-home kits provide my students with learning activities to keep their minds sharp over a school break.
The skills covered in these take-home kits reinforce concepts that we have learned throughout the year. Math concepts like multiplication, division, money, fractions and more are presented in 10 fun math games, while science topics such as force and motion, states of matter, chemical reactions, and electricity are practiced through 5 hands-on science experiments.
This gifts are also easy to put together. Each kit comes with a set of teacher directions for assembling the gifts. The math games require no extra materials (it’s all included in the kit!), while the science kit only requires a few extra materials, such as pipe cleaners, Q-tips, a balloon, and string to help students complete the experiments at home. Zip it all up in your Ziploc baggie, and your work is done!
Why Students Love Take-Home Math and Science Gifts:
As much as students hate to admit it, they get bored over an extended school break. By the second or third day, they are looking for something fun to do. These take-home kits are just the ticket to cure the boredom blues! They can simply grab their math or science kit and instantly have fun!
Students love the variety of activities provided. There’s something for everyone in these diverse kits. In the math kit, they will find puzzles, strategy games, board games, and fast-pace dice activities. With the science kit, they will find fascinating science tricks. and surprising experiments that will blow their mind!
These kits are fun for the whole family! Parents can get involved with their child’s learning by playing the math games with them and conducting the science experiments right alongside their child!
They won’t have to hear the dreaded “I’m bored” when their child runs out of things to do. These math and science kits will keep their child (and maybe an older or younger sibling!) entertained for hours!
