Junior Explorers Mission Yellowstone Review

Junior Explorers Mission Yellowstone Review

My son loves Junior Explorers, so he has to go to the new mission the day the box arrives.  

 When you sign up with Junior Explorers, you will receive a Welcome Kit.  Once you have your welcome kit, you will go on various missions.  I have reviewed several missions and you can check them out here.

Junior Explorers is a subscription service for children 6-11.  Boxes are $19.00/month (plus $2.00 shipping) and each month, your child gets a new online mission, along with a packet of goodies.  The goal of Junior Explorers, is to teach kids about the environment and animals, all while keeping things fun.

All the physical materials were mailed in a little cardboard box, with this month’s location on top.

137

This month, Junior Explorers is traveling to Yellowstone National Park.  This book is filled with cartoons, games, information about the location.

138

There is a mission checklist to go over, before you go to the online mission.  To access the online mission, you log into your Junior Explorers account and enter the code given in this book.

139

Kia and Kyle are the two kids that go with your child on missions.  A cartoon is included to talk about this month’s mission.  Due to hunting wolves were practically eliminated from Yellowstone.  They have been reintroduced and they have noticed an increase in willows (plants).  The job of the Junior Explorers is to find the connection between wolves and willows.

6 collectible trading cards were included to teach your child about some of the animals your child will see during the mission.

142

A map of Yellowstone was included.  They also listed common animals you will see there.

The ecosystem changed when wolves left, this diagram explains what happened.

There was a fun game in the back of the book, along with some other activities.  There is a spinner you attach to the spinner section to play.

When you child is done with the complete mission, there is a certificate to fill out and give to your child.

A wristband with little buffalo was included in the box.  The bead adjusts the size.
