When I discover a great resource to add learning fun to our homeschool, I do a major happy dance-and maybe even turn a cartwheel or two. I am a firm believer in incorporating engaging activities and interesting materials into our home education. With five boys and a busy schedule, I do not always have the time to piece together supplies and lessons.
Let’s just say that I threw a massive dance party when our first shipment of The Know Yourself Adventure Series was unpacked. Wowzers! I did not expect so much good stuff in one box!

What Is The Know Yourself Adventure Series?
Are you familiar with monthly subscription boxes? They are a great way to supplement your homeschool learning and add a bunch of fun. The Know Yourself Adventure Series is a new monthly subscription box that gives you the opportunity to address a variety of concepts, including:
- foreign languages
- physical education
How do the creators of Know Yourself make this happen? Through twelve (monthly) sets, kids get to explore and learn about different body systems. Using a popular format (comics), kids follow characters as they trek around the world and through history on a learning adventure. STEAM-based activities and lessons are interwoven to compliment the stories and provide even more substance your learning fun.
Who Is The Know Yourself Adventure Series For?
The recommended age for these monthly subscription boxes is 7+. Bear (5) enjoyed learning along with his three older brothers. Xman (2) was also able to participate in a few of the activities.
One feature that I think totally rocks is that this series appeals to both boys and girls. With both boy and girl characters, story lines are fact-based with fun plays on words throughout the activities. STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts, and music) activities are gender neutral and attention-grabbing.
The Know Yourself Adventure Series can be beneficial for a variety of learning styles and kids who just need to know “Why do I need to learn this?”. Adventure 1: The Five Senses (review coming soon!) includes activities that engage all learning styles. Another great aspect of these stories and lessons is the real life examples and applications of presented concepts. So helpful for my curious boys who want to know when they will need to ever use it when they grow up!
I envision including these lessons and activities into our Fun Fridays. The stories are relaxed yet filled with information. A weekly calendar is provided that is flexible yet a great guide for helping you determine the order to use materials. I love finding excellent resources for sneaky school (when kids are learning but don’ even realize it because they are having so much fun!)-especially when they address so many concepts and make my life easier!

I look forward to sharing our experiences with months 1 and 2 of The Know Yourself Adventure Series. Look for our review of Adventure 1: The 5 Senses in mid-October. Here’s a sneak peek at some of the items that we are just itching to use in this story set in Greece:
