    2. 2. Bubbles Activity
    3. 3. AfterSchool KidzScience kits…• are designed specifically for out-of-school settings• are for children in grades 3 – 5• have 4, ~45 minute sessions in each kit. The 4 sessions stand alone but build on each other.• include nearly all the materials you need to serve up to 20 kids• have one science learning goal per kit• are aligned to the National Science Education Standards (with state standards to come)• are inquiry-based• foster cooperation and teamwork
    4. 4. Video Clips • How-to Videos • What to expect in that kit’s sessions • How to explain the main science learning goal • How to prepare, use, or clean up the materials in selected activities • Leader Tips Videos • Valuable strategies for guiding and managing children in after school science activities • Help leaders with all of the AfterSchool KidzScience kits and are also helpful when leading other hands-on activities
