National Geographic Kids Earth Day Giveaway @NGKIDS #Sponsored

4/24/20
This sponsored post contains affiliate links.

This spring has been entirely different for all of us.  We're all feeling a bit strained with the challenge of distance learning and homeschooling. 

National Geographic Kids has two new books that are fantastic boredom busters that will keep cooped up kids engaged for hours. They are also trusted resources that weave in important topics like science, technology, conservation, culture and codebreaking in a FUN way!  Keep reading about these engaging books and a great giveaway.


National Geographic Kids giveaway

Explorer Academy: The Star Dunes by Trudi Trueit, is the fourth book in the popular fact-based fiction series (National Geographic Kids' Under the Stars; March 2020, ages 8-12). 

This book encourages kids to use their imaginations and allows them to travel from the comfort and safety of home.

Deemed "Captivating" by the editors at Parenting.com and "Exciting, fast paced" by Booklist, the series is filled with thrilling adventures, high-tech cadets, cool science, far-away lands, and codes to crack.

Follow 12-year-old Cruz Coronado during his time at the prestigious Explorer Academy, where he and 23 kids from around the globe are training to become the next generation of great explorers. In addition to making new friends and attending cool classes, Cruz must also work to unlock clues to his family’s shadowy past if he is to solve the mystery of his mother’s untimely death.    In this exciting follow-up to The Double Helix, a major discovery catapults Cruz and the Explorer Academy team into the limelight and they head off to Africa.  Cruz and his fellow recruits tackle challenging missions to dispense life-saving medications to gorillas, thwart pangolin poachers and capture images of the last known cheetahs in Namibia — all the while discovering that protecting the world’s threatened species is dangerous business!  

After yet another strike from Nebula, someone close to Cruz ends up on the brink of death, leaving the ship in turmoil and Cruz and his team down a major player.  The discovery of his mom’s next clue leads Cruz to a vast desert — and just when he thinks he’s run out of leads for solving the mystery of her tragic disappearance, an unlikely ally helps him pursue another piece of the ongoing puzzle. Can Cruz and his team stay one step ahead of Nebula and find the next piece of the hidden cipher?


With four critically acclaimed titles in this series now available, two companion nonfiction activity books and literally hours and hours of videos, games, and info on real-life explorers at ExplorerAcademy.com , Explorer Academy is the perfect way to keep kids learning, reading and engaged. 

  
An illustrated spread from The Star Dunes can be viewed here and the first chapter from The Star Dunes can be read here.   



National Geographic Kids giveaway

Extreme Ocean: Amazing Animals, High-Tech Gear, Record-Breaking Depths and Much More by National Geographic Explorer Sylvia A. Earle (National Geographic Kids Books, March 2020, Ages 8-12
***A perfect pick for World Ocean Day (June 8th) and Shark Week in July***. 

We've really been missing our trips to the Aquarium during the stay-at-home order.  This book encourages her curiosity and love of sea creatures while we are staying at home.

Discover the most outrageous aspects of the deep blue — from record-breaking depths to towering tsunamis, underwater giants to tiny sea creatures — along with ocean conservation challenges and what kids can do to help.  An action-packed combination of science and adventure, famed National Geographic Explorer Sylvia Earle leads readers on an in-depth tour of life beneath the waves. 

Come face-to-face with whales and sharks, learn about the newest and most hi-tech ocean gear and gadgets, experiment with hands-on activities, and join Earle as she recounts her most daring dives. Packed with fascinating tidbits, animal profiles, and up-to-date science, each chapter combines stunning photography with fun, accessible text. Perfect for curious kids, ocean lovers, young explorers, and the classroom. Extreme Ocean reveals the mystery, majesty, danger, and — above all --the importance of our ocean.


I highly recommend these books from National Geographic Kids for their themes of conservation.  They are also great choices to celebrate Earth Day!

Online Homeschool Science Classes #ad #HomeschoolScience

4/16/20
This post is sponsored by College Prep Science. 

During this unprecedented time of staying at home and online schooling, you may need to outsource your child’s lessons to a veteran science teacher to have more time to lesson plan for other subjects. If you are a homeschool parent looking for additional online homeschool science classes for your children in Science for 3rd – 12th grade homeschooled students, this is a great resource.
Homeschooling education

Greg Landry’s academy of online homeschool science classes for 3rd – 12th-grade students offer the expertise of a former college professor/homeschool science teacher with 20+ years of teaching experience and the convenience of not having to leave home. Professor Landry offers: 
  • “College prep” online classes for students who will likely be college science majors
  • “Life prep” online classes for students who likely won’t be college science majors or likely won’t attend college
- Life Prep Physics (9th-12th) - Two Semester Class
- Human Anatomy & Physiology (9th-12th) - Two Semester Class
- Biology - College Prep (9th-12th) - Two Semester Class
- Life Prep Biology (8th-12th) - Two Semester Class
- Chemistry - College Prep (10th-12th) - Two Semester Class
- Life Prep Chemistry (9th-12th) - Two Semester Class
- Pre-Anatomy & Physiology (6th-9th) - One Semester Class
- Pre-Chemistry (6th-9th) - - One Semester Class
- Pre-Biology (6th-9th) - One Semester Class
- Pre-Physics (6th-9th) - One Semester Class
- ACT Prep Bootcamp (8th-12th)
- Self-paced science classes for 3rd – 6th-grade students
Professor Landry says, “The depth, breadth, and pedagogy of many college-prep Biology, Chemistry and Physics classes leaves many "non-science" students frustrated, uninterested, and ultimately learning very little. I find that students in this situation often miss the big picture and they don't have an overall understanding of the subject matter that is so critical in these sciences. They can't see the forest because they're lost in the trees. Our "life prep" classes are basic high school level classes, enable students to see the forest, and will allow them to learn science through the lens of their God-given interests and talents.”

In the words of a homeschool parent…
"Greg, ...what you did for our daughter will have far-reaching effects. You showed her that learning can be enjoyable..."

-Thankful in Indiana
Jim H.

College Prep Science Homeschool Education

These online homeschool science classes also include lab experiments and graded lab reports in Professor Landry’s virtual homeschool science laboratory. Students attend class weekly (either live or by recording), turn-in homework, and are tested on a regular basis. These classes are all-inclusive and provide students with an enjoyable, comprehensive science experience.
​Homeschool dad, scientist, and former college professor, Greg Landry, offers live, online homeschool science classes, Homeschool ACT Prep Bootcamp, the Homeschool Mom’s Science Podcast, in-person two-day science lab intensives nationwide, freebies for homeschool moms, and student-produced homeschool print publications.
