As the release of volume 4 is quickly approaching (February 1st for those of you who haven’t heard), we thought we would share a few review tips for Sassafras Science. These tips will help you get ready for your next leg as you take a quick look at where you have been so far.
These tips have been tested and suggested by your fellow adventurers, so we are confident they will be a blast!
Let’s get to them…
President Lincoln put together a video after each leg of our journey. The presentations reviewed the key scientific facts from our previous leg and used pictures from our journey.
Uncle Cecil emceed the whole thing, which was hilarious. And though we can’t bring Uncle Cecil into your homes, thanks to Linc Dog Productions, you can watch the videos!
Have your students create a story presentation board like the one above created by a super awesome Sassy-Sci adventurer! Your board can have some of the key facts you have learned or the most exciting parts you remember from our journey.
You will get loads of review as you plan out their board. Plus, the whole family can share in your journey as you present your work.
Pull out a wall map, some string, and a handful of pins to take advantage of this user review tip. You can start with a pin at Uncle Cecil’s place, and then use the string and pins to track the last leg that you read about.
As you put a pin in each location, talk about the different things you learned from our local expert at that spot!
Are you into Minecraft and coding? Then, you take some time to create a room in Minecraft after one of the scenes in the story.
Didn’t the Sassy-Sci adventurer above do a fabulous job?
If you don’t have access to a smartphone to download one of our free apps, you can create your own! The uber-creative Sassy-Sci adventurer in the pic above did just that!
Then, you can use your smartphone to have your own adventures from the comforts of your own home.
