A KitBook is the patented combination of a science book and science kit seamlessly integrated together to promote STEM learning. Each text chapter is reinforced by accompanying hands-on activities to appeal to all leaning styles. Materials needed for each hands-on activity are provided and all activities are performed on the KitBook’s “Power Page” by snapping components in and out of the circuit.
Yes! All activities were designed to be safely performed using a single 1.5-volt AA battery
All KitBooks are proudly printed and assembled in America with every part possible sourced from other American companies.
No. Everything needed to perform all activities is included – even the AA battery.
Absolutely! All components snap in and out to make the various circuits. The only consumable part is one AA battery which typically lasts 2-3 hours.
We understand a classroom can be a tough environment for any product. KitBooks are designed to last years in this environment with minimal care. Polycarbonate plastic is used to make the base for all snap-in components. This unbreakable plastic is used to make bullet-proof glass.
We always want your KitBook to be complete, to give every student a rewarding learning experience. If you ever break or lose a part you can order a replacement from our products page.
The text is written for a fourth-grade reading level. Diagrams support the text, providing clear instructions for performing each activity.
The Electric Circuits KitBook was developed to meet National Science Education Standards to promote STEM learning. The KitBook’s chapters include:
- What is electricity; electricity safety; definitions
- Simple circuits
- Conductors and insulators
- Series circuits
- Parallel circuits
This is where KitBooks shine. Every component used in the KitBook has its own uniquely shaped cavity (similar to a chocolate box) for storage within the book. Hand a KitBook to a student and you have given everything needed for the lesson. When the KitBook is returned a clear rear window allows a quick inspection to ensure all parts are present before storage.
Absolutely! Students can experiment on the Power Page using two jumper leads included in each KitBook. For example, when testing materials to determine if they conduct electricity the student can attach any object in the classroom to see if electricity flows through it to light the bulb.
What are our customers saying?
“Our students just loved working with their KitBooks. But the best part was their test scores… they went way up!”—Sister Mary Margaret
“I have taught circuits for years using wires, batteries, and bulbs. Students have a hard time getting everything connected without the wires slipping off the bulb or battery. With this KitBook, everything ‘snaps’ into the right spot effortlessly.”—Donna L.
