Junior Explorers is an educational mission-based monthly subscription for kids, ages 5-11, to explore and discover wildlife and nature. The children will travel around the world literally and virtually, learning about the different habitats of the world. Every month, a new mission pack with a new habitat (biome) will be delivered via normal post. With each delivery, there will be a unique mission code for access into the online world of learning. The program has great developmental value for all kids that have an interest in animals, nature and are curious to explore the planet.
Junior Explorers is designed for inquisitive kids to explore the planet with resident explorers, Kia and Kyle. Kids who have special interests in animals and nature would love this and it is especially true of both Jiejie and Didi! With every 1st subscription, users will a receive special Introductory Kit before the official Mission Kit arrives. The Introductory Kit contains a world map and a field guide, a water bottle, a wristband and pin, some cute temporary tattoos and stickers, as well as a “trunk” of their own.
The kids can’t wait to decorate their adventure “trunk” when they first received it and proudly shared it between them. They found a spot to hang up the world map (do keep this hung at a convenient place for it is required for monthly mission – ditto for field guide).
Once a username and password is created via the unique initialization code in the Introductory Kit, the kids would be ready to start their first mission and play on it as often as they are allowed to (note that I didn’t say “as often as they wish to” because I am pro-objective screen time, not random screen time).
As a Junior Explorer, the kids are invited to see the world the way created by Mother Nature. No more boring non-fiction books to force the kids to read. Interesting copies are hard to come by too. With Junior Explorer Mission Kits, the kids are introduced to monthly different world of biomes and the wildlife that lives in each biome. Here are the three Mission Kits we have received so far. Others will be coming along in the months to come.
Each Mission Kit includes fun collectibles including the mission-themed wristband, badge, stickers and tattoos. Together with two animal figurines, six animal fact cards, four post cards, an information sheet and an activity book, kids are exposed to an easy and fun way to understand the importance of recycling and conservation. They will also be guided with steps to login and begin the mission online at http://sg.juniorexplorers.com, with their trusted friends and fellow explorers – Kia and Kyle!
Mission Kit information and resources circle around the following learning points :-
- Biomes are regions of the world with similar climate, animals and plants.
- Our planet is made up of seven biomes: Oceans, Temperate Forests, Grasslands, Tropical Forests, Mountains, Deserts, Polar Regions.
- Animals live in different biomes because the climate, food source and living conditions vary greatly between biomes.
- An animal from one biome cannot live in another biome.
- Countries far apart from each other may have the same biome!
