Blog Bash Giveaway 4: Educational Insights Prize Pack!! $125 ARV!!

Congrats to Terri!






Our final Blog Bash sponsor is...

"Educational Insights is a leading manufacturer of learning toys and innovative, hands-on educational materials for classrooms worldwide. For nearly 50 years, Educational Insights has been a trusted source for teachers and parents for quality, award-winning educational products in math, science, social studies, language, language arts, reading, early childhood, Spanish, ELL, ESL teaching and classroom management."

Educational Insights has offered up a great prize package including one of each of the following items:

Smens® Pens, Set of 10
"Made from recycled newspapers!
Ages 6-14
The latest release from the best-selling manufacturer of Smencils®, Smens® are gourmet scented pens made from recycled newspapers. Available scents include Red Licorice, Creamsicle, Aloha, Mystery Scent, Banana FoFana, Mocha, Passion Fruit, Ninja Berry, Pink Lemonade, and Black Licorice. Each Smen is individually wrapped in a stay-fresh biodegradable plastic tube and is guaranteed to keep its scent for two years."

Everyday Uses Rock & Card Set
"Ages 8-12
Identify various rocks and minerals and correlate them to their real-life uses with this hands-on rock and card set. Each double-sided card features a photo of a rock in the set, pictures of the way it is used in everyday life, and fun, kid-friendly facts."
Fraction Formula™ Game
"A visual way to present fractions or parts of a whole!
Ages 8-11
It’s a race to “1” with this four-player fraction game!
1. Draw a card and find the corresponding fizzy fraction tile
2. Drop the tile into your cylinder
3. “Hold” if you think you’re as close to 1 as you’ll get without going over or draw another card if you think you can get closer by adding another fraction tile
4. The player who gets closest to 1 wins the round!"

GeoSafari® Tuff Scope
"Explore images up to 400x their original size with Tuff Scope! This two-in-one microscope is perfect for classroom projects or magnification on the go! Simply set up as a classroom station or remove the microscope from the base and send kids outdoors to explore. When used with the GeoSafari® Tuff Cam digital video camera, GeoSafari® Tuff Scope transforms into a digital microscope, projecting magnified images onto a computer screen or projector. Also features 2x continuous optical zoom, transmissive and reflective LED lighting, and a storage drawer."

What we thought:  As always, we were not disappointed with this selection of goodies from Educational Insights.  The Smens made writing and drawing fun and the variety of smells was great.  We've had ours for a few weeks now and they still smell as strong as the day we got them.  Its also pretty cool that they are so Earth-friendly!  5 year old A really loved the Everyday Uses Rock and Card set.  The cards are full of useful information that she could understand and she loved "testing" the rocks to identify them:)  Fraction Formula was awesome and even though my kiddos are pretty young (5 and 2) it was a fun way to introduce the concept of fractions to them.  This game would be great for kiddos 8-11.  The GeoSafari Tuffscope was great for both kiddos, but especially 2 year old Danny who really enjoyed testing it's durability:)  Fortunately, the Tuffscope is really well-constructed and perfect for introducing magnification to little ones.  A really enjoyed finding things around the house to "investigate" under the scope.  As a mom and former teacher, I give my seal of approval for all of these awesome products!  ABCD Diaries gives Educational Insights a much deserved A+!!
