What our experts think
Go on your very own excavation dig without ever having to leave the comfort of your own home with the National Geographic Mega Gemstone and Fossil Dig Kit. Our testers were ready to “dig in” right away, and they enjoyed discovering hidden “treasures”. It was fantastic to see all of the social interactions and teamwork while working in pairs or small groups to locate and excavate their findings. This extensive, hands on, kit was easy to use while also providing elements of problem solving and tool use. Children were motivated to repeatedly go back
until they had found every fossil and gemstone. With each new “find” their excitement grows, as does their determination to complete their “dig”. This activity kit is excellent for a family project, school project, and leisure. This mega gemstone and fossil dig kit fosters fine motor skills and executive functioning skills. Additional learning opportunities are encouraged with facts about each fossil/gem provided within a colourful fun-to-read booklet.
