    Comments about Educational Insights Nancy B's Science Club Garbage To Gardens Compost Kit and Decomposition Book:

    This is by far the coolest way to teach composting to kids. Not only are they are part of the process, and really get to see, over time, how it works, they are the future and will think about Mother Earth. I love that it comes with a journal to keep track of what's happening, and that it's small enough to keep on the kitchen counter, but large enough to really get what's going on. Education toys like this are my favorite because not only are they learning, and experimenting, but making a the world a better place. I received a sample in exchange for a review all thoughts are my own.

      Comments about Educational Insights Nancy B's Science Club Garbage To Gardens Compost Kit and Decomposition Book:

      If you want to find an entertaining and educational way to teach your kids about composting and why we compost, then you have to check this product out. You can also teach your kids why we try not to have certain products fill our landfill, because they just do not break down.
      I love the Nancy B products. They are educational and a ton of fun. Best of all, you can do the experiment over and over again. It is not a one time use product like many science kits.
      I recommend this product for home use and for schools.

      I received this product in exchange for my honest opinion.

          Comments about Educational Insights Nancy B's Science Club Garbage To Gardens Compost Kit and Decomposition Book:

          This is another great Nancy B Science Club kit! My 9 year old daughter loved making her own compost. The duo chambers were great because we could do two experiments at once. We put some kitchen vegetable scraps on one side and a styrofoam cup in the other. This was a great way to demonstrate the importance of biodegradability! The steps were super easy to follow and I loved how you could get started right away. All I needed was some potting soil. I loved that the kit could be used over and over again. Just make sure to make copies of the observation booklet for future experiments. My 6 year was a little impatient and wished the decomposition process would go faster but it was fine for the 9 year old. My daughter can't wait to use her compost to plant the flower seedlings she had grown from seeds. She wants to compare how those seedlings grow in comparison to the seedlings that are planted without compost. Can't wait to see her findings!

                I received this to review and really enjoyed seeing how fast different things turned into compost. It was very interesting, sometimes a little gross but the kids loved it and then using the soil to plant flowers this spring is a wonderful idea. It shows kids recycling on a easy level

                  My kids have enjoyed experimenting (and learning) with this compost kit. This kit comes with a plastic container with removable lid and a workbook. The container has a removable plastic divider making two compartments, allowing you to put in two different items or one big compartment. Remember to have soil on hand to start using the kit!

                  This is a really easy kit to use. Put the item(s) in, fill with soil, water, replace lid. Doesn't get much simpler than that! My son chose an apple core and a banana peel to observe first. The compost process is just beginning. He is already making lists of different items he would like to compost next.

                  The workbook has different activities to do, suggestions of items to compost, and science information that ties everything together.

                    Great STEM toy, really engaged my girls in learning about recycling and composting first hand. They can't wait to use their compost to start planting fresh produce in the backyard and see the full cycle. Only downside, they're watching Mom & Dad now like hawks, to be sure we're being completely "green." Great for an child interested in science, planting, recycling, etc.

                        I received this kit to review but my comments are based only on my experience with this kit. I used this with three 3rd grade boys. They were very excited and enjoyed looking at the kit and book. We were able to brainstorm items that we could put in to make compost. It was decided that we would get fruit from lunch and look for a banana peel and an uncooked vegetable. The soil I purchased and the boys helped to set up the compost kit. It was easy to follow directions. At this time the boys are watching what happens and recording their findings in the compost booklet. We will continue this experiment for a few weeks and see how it all turns out. The only down side is if you want to do this with another group you would not be able to write in the compost booklet. I made copies of the pages that were needed to write on and this has worked the best for my situation. There is more than one option in the book to use. So this could be an ongoing experiment using different items in the compost container. The kit also has a web site to visit that has other experiments from the Nancy B's science club that need only a few materials. The boys have already picked out the next ones they want to try!
