Science Activities for Kids

girl doing scienceMany science activities for babies and toddlers will principally involve building language. As you describe and name interesting phenomena, your child will be exposed to a rich variety of new words. Your preschooler or kindergartner is usually developmentally capable of physically engaging with things on his own, and has gained enough facility with language to begin describing and discussing his experiences. The first or second-grader is better able to record her experiences and make some predictions based on her extra years of experience. Help your child explore the world of science by engaging in some exciting and fun investigations together!
