You can get more of an idea what these challenges are like in this blog post, which highlights three of the challenges above (though it doesn't contain all the support materials that are included in the paid file, it is a sample of the challenges above).

Materials can be of your own choice - I tend to use office supplies and recyclables for almost everything in this pack!  Things like tape, rubber bands, binder clips, and cardboard will come in handy.

As a former engineer and current homeschooling parent, I love creating fun and practical-life math units as well as hands-on math and science experiments! You can read about some of the experiments and activities we've done on my momgineer blog, or like my Facebook page for updates. I have two very curious home learners that keep me on my toes constantly creating new activities and games, as this is how they best learn. I primarily create these materials for them for our homeschool classroom, but I have also created units for other homeschooling families.
