    I was lucky enough to review this product on my blog and it was so much fun! Lots of great ideas to use this in the classroom by burying some learning maipulatives with some metal attached. A great way to get the students engaged in learning for sure!

        I received this to review for LR and it's just the perfect size for your smallest toddler & preschool age children. It is a great way to introduce treasure hunting and items made from different materials to kids and would be fun for a preschool enrichment center as well!

            Comments about Learning Resources Primary Science Metal Detector:

            Summer is right around the corner so I've been coming up with activities and searching for a few toys for my kids to enjoy that are fun, hands-on, & can get them moving! My children enjoy spending time outdoors and exploring but when it's a bit too warm out or raining we tend to spend a good amount of time indoors. I still aim to get my kids moving when they are inside the house and the newly released Primary Science Metal Detector from Learning Resources has been fabulous for my kids whether inside or out.

            The Primary Science Metal Detector is quite kid appealing in bright colors of green and blue. The sizing (12"L x 5"W) is best for children around ages 3-5 years old. To work, the detector requires 2 AAA batteries which aren't included. We've been using rechargeable batteries and those last for days before the charge obviously is running low. The battery compartment lid can easily be removed with a small screwdriver and keeps the batteries secure and away from kids.

            This metal detector for kids works much like one an adult would use! The handle pivots up and down and when metal is located, the detector beeps and the three red lights on the circular part of the detector light up! The handle is easy to grip for my 3 1/2 year old son and it seems to be pretty light-weight. He hasn't once said that it was too heavy or showed signs of dragging it a long. On the handle there is a on/off switch that must be turned all the way on to the left to hear a beep and then back to the right slightly until the beeping stops to ready the detector.

            My children have had so much fun using the Primary Science Metal Detector around our house and yard. We are really looking forward to taking it with us to the beach the Summer to see what treasures we may find! You can get pretty creative with the detector by creating scavenger and treasure hunts around your yard or park with metal items to locate! If you have a sandbox, it would be fun to hide a few items like coins, jacks, and other metal things to search for. It would also be great to bring along if your family partakes in geo-caching! My kids have been having so much fun discovering what everyday things are made out of metal and finding buried treasures strewn about!

            I would certainly recommend The Primary Science Metal Detector for fun indoors or out. It seems to be quite durable and battery life seems to last a while. My son asks to play with it every single day! He's having so much fun and probably not even realizing he's learning a lot about the world him at the same time. A total win, if you ask me.

            perfect for a trip to the beach!

            By Stuff Parents Need

            from Chattanooga, TN

            Pros

            • Fun sounds

            Cons

            • Handle too short

            Best Uses

            • Beach

            Comments about Learning Resources Primary Science Metal Detector:

            The too short handle will wear a child out after a while, as even a 4 year old has to hunch over to use it. But the lights and sounds that go off when a metal object is near are very fun. This is perfect for doing some great independent play on the beach, in the sandbox, or even in the back yard.

            Comments about Learning Resources Primary Science Metal Detector:

            We got this product for our grand daughter who is almost 5 years old. She loves to be outdoors and my husband has a metal detector and she is too young to use his. We really like this metal detector from Learning Resources but we do wish it had a little longer handle. She is average size for a 4 1/2 year old and she had to constantly bend over to get it close to the ground. Other than that, it is a great product.

              I love these passes. They work perfect for students when using the restroom because they stick to the door, unlike wooden passes these can be wiped with sanitizer to reduce the spread of germs.

                I use these to know where the kids are at all times, even for individual learning, groups out of classroom, etc. Each student has a name tag laminated and piece of magnet tape on back. Student places name tag under the header (bathroom, office, etc.). This allows teacher to know where students are at all times at a quick glance. Also helps guest teachers who may encounter that unscheduled fire drill. I would definitely recommend - great organizational tool!
