Earthquakes shake the continents and oceans, and volcanoes spew out the molten insides of our planet. Earth is constantly changing. You'll get to know reasons how and why with this cool kit.
Massive pieces of the Earth's outer layer are slowly sliding under, over, away from, or past each other. By studying these awe-inspiring and devastating natural phenomena, scientists learn more about the inner workings of Earth.
With this up-to-date, factual Volcanoes & Earthquakes kit, the experiences and knowledge of scientists are made accessible to kids! A sampling of the activities inside this Volcanoes & Earthquakes kit follows:
Discover plate tectonics and see how volcanoes develop.
Build and erupt a model volcano with plaster-based lava that hardens after each eruption. (This is no one-time show. The volcano can be erupted multiple times, much to the appreciation of kids.)
Monitor the volcanic cone that builds up with each volcanic eruption, just like real scientists would.
Learn about the different types of volcanoes.
Discover how earthquakes are caused by constant movement of the planet's parts.
Build a model of a working seismograph.
Fake some 'quakes to see for yourself how scientists measure earthquake forces.
Assemble a plate tectonics puzzle and a geological globe.
Play a volcano quiz game to learn about well-known volcanoes.
The activities within Volcanoes and Earthquakes will intrigue kids for certain. Better yet, they'll be more knowledgable about the composition and ongoing dynamics of planet Earth.

As one of the top online toy retailers, we have access to unprecendented quantities of product review data. One of the key ways that we use this data is by associating our products to the specific ages and genders of the kids who are playing with them. Whereas most retailers must rely upon manufacturer suggested ages (i.e. 3+), we take actual customer usage and share it with you here so that you can choose the perfect toy or game.
But how does this help me? You can use these graphs as a general measure of it's appropriateness for a given age and gender. While this information is generally accurate, it should not be used as an absolute answer. For instance, many dinosaur toys are purchased for boys, however, that doesn't mean that it's inappropriate for a girl who happens to like dinosaurs.
NOTE: The orange color in the charts above indicate ages that are LESS than the manufacturer suggested age. Please purchase at your discretion if your child is younger than 10 years of age.
