These 5 labs for young children (preschool - 2nd grade) are so much fun that your children might just think they're doing magic! Each lab is designed so that the child can actually perform the experiment and write up the lab report (non-readers will need assistance filling in the lab report). The Student Pages (or lab reports) emphasize the scientific method and introduce early science reasoning skills and vocabulary.
The experiments are actually approrpriate for older children (up through middle school), but the Student Pages are written for younger scientists!
The packet includes 5 Student Pages (one for each experiment), 5 pages with instructions and background for parents or teachers, and a cover page.
The 5 labs are:
Early childhood is a wonderful time of life! Whether children are climbing outside, building castles, or playing a board game, they are learning constantly. I love to be a part of that learning process.
I create activities, lesson plans, themes, and printables for preschool and early childhood!
I have over 20 years of experience working with young children, a BS in Biology Composite Teaching, over 6 years of classroom teaching experience, and I currently run a small daycare while homeschooling our children!
In this shop I combine my passion for teaching with my love for sharing resources. You will find teaching aids especially useful to homeschoolers, small daycares, and early childhood classrooms.
More than half of the items in my shop are free! Many of the other items are first posted as a "3-day Freebie" before they are transferred to a regular item. Parents and teachers do so much for our children that this is one small way I feel like I can make your lives just a little easier. I also have tons of free, easy, and fun ideas for young children on my blog, Preschool Powol Packets. I'd love to meet you there too!
Feel free to contact me with any questions or comments--I love to hear from you!
