Summer is such an amazing time of the year. It opens up so many doors for my family to have things to do. We love to take walks, go swimming, play games outside and so much more. This summer we get to enjoy looking up at the stars. However, Dominique my 10-year-old daughter gets to enjoy her very own Nancy B’s Science Club MoonScope which comes with a Star Gazer's Activity Journal from Educational Insights.
Educational Insights offer items from brain-teasing, dice rolling games to ultra-imaginative, kid-powered dinosaur construction vehicle mashups. They got a little something for everyone.
Grab your MoonScope and take a tour of the nighttime sky complete with visits to the stars, Saturn, Jupiter, and even check out the mountain ranges, seas, and craters on the moon! The Sky Gazer’s Journal is packed with fun activities, like learning about the lunar phases, writing a moon myth, creating your own man in the moon, and more! Ages 8+
My little girl was so excited when she got her Nancy B’s Science Club MoonScope and Star Gazer's Activity Journal from Educational Insights. I know that this telescope is intended for children and it may even have the look of a toy. However, this telescope works amazing just as it should. The telescope does come in a few different pieces that do need put together but it only takes a few moments to assemble. The telescope came with several different items: a tripod, two different eyepieces a 20 mm & a 4 mm, a moon filter and an activity journal.
I have found the telescope very useful in several different occasions. I homeschool my children so this helps in making science class much more fun. My kids already enjoy the whole astronomy course but this allowed them to learn more than from just reading a book.
My daughter really enjoyed her telescope however, my little boy did not care one bit that it looked more girly. He was just happy that he could look through the telescope and see the moon and stars just like his big sister.
My oldest was able to find objects in the sky with ease, as she is older. However, my little boy did need some assistance in finding certain stars. You do have to work with the focusing on the telescope to see things, which is no different from other telescopes we have used in the past. This telescope offers just as much detail on a star and the moon as a bigger telescope.
The journal was very useful in helping us learn more about the moon and its phases. My little girl really enjoyed filling out her journal. The journal allows your kids to learn a little more and have a little extra fun while doing so.
I would suggest when using the telescope you either place it on a table or chair because the tripod on it is short. However, this makes it perfect to pack along with you on vacations.
