In this activity, children will explore objects and materials by using their five senses. They will think and talk about what information they get from each sense and have fun identifying objects and materials by using one or a combination of their senses. They will be introduced to the science ideas that animals use their senses to help them move about their environments, find food, and avoid predators. Download Activities

In this activity, children investigate weather in their own environments and keep a weather chart. They will be introduced to weather phenomena specific to colder months of the year and associated with low temperatures and explore what happens to water at different temperatures as it freezes and melts. If it is winter and if children live in places where winter is cold, they will go outside to explore ice, frost, and snow. Download Activities
In this activity, children observe trees and the animals that use trees for food, shelter, and protection. During their explorations, children may learn how birds, insects, and other animals depend on trees as they discover leaves that have been eaten, nuts hidden in a tree cavity, or a nest on a branch. They may also observe how birds, squirrels, and a variety of small creatures use their bodies to move in, on, and around trees. Download Activities
In this activity, children observe insects and other animals in their natural environments and notice the animals' coloring in comparison to the colors of their surroundings. They will look closely at worms and create a worm habitat. They will notice how the worms' coloring helps them blend into the dirt, and they will observe how the worms' behavior may also help them hide from predators. Download Activities
