TOS Review: AIMS Educational Foundation





Our most recent review with the TOS Crew is from AIMS Educational Foundation. The book that we reviewed was the 3-5 Science Electrical Connections.

This one was for Monkey Man, he is in 4th grade. This book is designed for kids in 4-6th grade. However, after going through it I think some more advanced 3rd graders would be able to use this too. Smile



In Electrical Connections they uncover the mysteries of electricity. Broken down into four sections, Static Electricity, Circuits, Electromagnetism, and the History of Electricity. We love to way they present these materials to the kids. It is in such a fun way, they don’t even really realize they are learning. I was even excited to read it. We had a great time with experiments we tried, and can’t wait to try more.

Monkey Man loves science, so this was very exciting for him to get. He couldn’t wait to try it out. Winking smile Needless to say we started this in science within days of receiving it. The few lessons we did get through, he really enjoyed. Like learning about Static Electricity with balloons and other small objects. Here he is trying to get static electricity with plastic wrap.


Waiting for instructions



All the required materials



Making static!


Little did we know that each plastic wrap has a different likeliness to produce static. So we had tried this time with Target Brand Plastic Wrap, and we didn’t have much luck. Now we have something to compare out next try to, when we get a different brand. Just more science fun right??

AIMS Educational Foundation also has a few other books to choose from 3 different levels of Math, and 3 different levels of Science.

The ages for these vary depending on the grade levels you choose.

The cost varies between $18.95-$21.95.

Check out what our TOS Crew members have to say about it.
