Early Childhood science experiences are more than experiments! Our goal is to help build and foster a scientific mind. What is a scientific mind? It is a mind that wants to explore; it is an inquisitive mind. As adults in the child’s environment, we want to expose children to all areas of science through hands-on materials and experiments. We can integrate science topics with vocabulary building exercises, examining things in nature, and in literature and songs.
Simple science tools are a part of our classroom curriculum and are easy to replicate at home. Some basic science experiences and tools used with young children are magnifying glasses, magnets, sink and float activities, balance scales, and oil and water experiences.
