Curiosity Files… TOS Crew Review

What do you do on a snowy January day when the local schools have cancelled classes and your brother is now home on a snow day but Mom expects you to do school nevertheless?

You open Professor Ana Lyze‘s Curiosity File and learn about MRSA (that is Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus) , of course! 


Professor Ana Lyze is The Old Schoolhouse Magazine resident expert on anything that needs to be discovered, explored or analyzed (hence her name… Ana Lyze).  Through great illustrations, simple experiments and easy-to-understand text, the fictitious Professor has written NINE Curiosity Files that teach elementary through high school students in a digital unit study format…
…Blue Diamond
…Dung Beetle
…MRSA
…Puffer Fish
…Red Tide
…Zombie Fire Ants
…Blue-footed Booby
…Cicada Killing Wasp
…Quicksand


These are available in a 9-pack bundle CD for $49.00 or in a 9-back bundle eBook for $46.00.  The Old Schoolhouse Store also sells them individually as eBooks for varying prices.


As a member of the TOS Review Crew, we had the opportunity to review the Curiosity Files on MRSA.  We got so engrossed in everything we never wanted to know about MRSA that we forgot to take pictures of all four of us (7 year old Ellen, 11 year old Emily, 13 year old Eric and Mom) all oohing and ahhing over the photos of the grape-like clusters of MRSA and reading about how MRSA is spread by contact.  We had a blast learning some new vocab words, doing some age appropriate word puzzles (because the unit study had puzzles for Ellen’s age and for Eric’s age) and taking a quiz.  Mom especially enjoyed the Bible part of the unit study and was thrilled to see it there!


Do you know what the best part of spending the day with Professor Ana Lyze was? …


… Mom made Eric do school with us even though he had a snow day!


**Disclaimer… I was sent this eBook for my honest review.  I received no other compensation.

One thought on “Curiosity Files… TOS Crew Review

  1. We learned about the Cicada Killing Wasp with this one. We really liked it & after reading other Curiosity File reviews we are planning on doing some more.

I'd love to know what you think...
