Here's the Box Breakdown
what's in the know yourself adventure
Everything that we received in our Know Yourself Adventure #2! This adventure takes us to Russia and explores the human skeletal system. Sounds fun!


So what is all this stuff?


Our inserts that explain a bit about the Adventure Series


This is so cool! With comics and characters from the Know Yourself Series this backpack is defintely intriguing (for kids as well as parents) And since it's part of the first three adventures... it will be included in the giveaway!


We'll use these in our skeleton project (just wait - you'll see)


You may be saying, "Oh a deck of cards." But not just any deck of cards, a deck with facts about the human anatomy!

With each card comes a new fact about the body. We love these!


Neat-O Torpedo! This pen looks like a (leg?) bone! Penny thought this was really cool!


Each Adventure comes with a booklet that has information, facts, and little activities (including recipes) relating to the focus of the adventure

A page describing the adventure

A page with some traditional Russian recipes

Put your thoughts on the recipes here

Fill in the blanks

This next section teaches you about your bones and how you use them. They use ballet as an analogy






A couple experiments

A little bit about Russian Nesting Dolls

Some facts about Russian novelists and history

What's next in the Know Yourself Adventure Series?

And finally, a little bit about the Know Yourself writer Sam Sattin!


We received four sheets with pop out bones. Enough to make an entire human skeleton. Each was labeled with the name of the bone that made it a little easier to assemble. We thought it looked super cool! 



Each Know Yourself Adventure comes with a comic book. Penny loves these the most. She still reads the comic from the first adventure from time to time. 


Who doesn't love stickers?! These have the characters from the Know Yourself Series


Okay so now what?


First, we did some of the activities in the workbook
Penny read through this and the comic book immediately following the unboxing video

Then we took on building the skeleton. This was ridiculously fun.
I think mostly, we love the aesthetic of this skeleton. It just looks cool. In this picture you can see ... we forgot the neck!

No worries old chap! We've got your "back" (haha - see what we did there?)

Penny hung "Bony" up in her room after he was assembled

Because we used the brads we can maneuver the different parts of the body and see how the skeletal system actually functions!

This skeleton was taller than Oliver!


So in summary


We look for three things in a subscription box; quality, curation, and presentation. The Know Yourself Adventure Series is an excellent self literacy kit perfect for homeschoolers and active parents alike! We love the way they incorporate some history and other information into the Adventures as well. Presentation is great, everything arrives exactly as it should. The quality is AWESOME! The backpack is an awesome touch! And curation... well what can we say. They put together this amazing learning system and all we had to do was follow aong. It's amazing!
