NATURE BOX - PARENT/EDUCATOR RESOURCES

Hello Parents, Educators, and Caregivers,

We are so happy that the child/children in your life are taking part in COSI Connects science learning kits! We have designed this Nature box to be fun, engaging, and educational. We know education is important now more than ever, and COSI stands ready to be your partner with this COSI kit. Together, we will engage, inspire, and transform our students and youth in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) at school and at home.

This box is full of experiences designed to engage learners of all ages! As you look through the Activity Book found inside the kit, you will find step-by-step instructions, interactive questions that will promote critical thinking, and explanations of the science behind each activity. Each box contains the materials needed to complete each activity, but many activities also provide options to expand on the science using materials found at home. While many children will be able to independently complete all of these activities, this is a great opportunity for an adult, classmate, or sibling to join in the fun.

If you want to dig deeper into science content, additional experiences are available through our free COSI Connects digital platform, where you can filter videos and activities by topic and grade level. Check here to see new COSI Kit themes as they are released.
