For part of Grace’s free choice activities yesterday, we began working with Science Wizardry for Kids. This book is pretty awesome. It has tons of short experiments and activities to demonstrate basic scientific concepts. So far, all of the required supplies have been household items…or items that were inexpensive and easy to acquire. The activities do have explanations of the science behind them, but they are very brief and simplified.
Here are our first few activities from the book:
Grace is enjoying the activities in this book so much that she wants to repeat the “warmer molecules move more quickly” activity again today with a third sample (water that’s been refrigerated). We’ll also be creating molecule models with marshmallows. Good stuff. 🙂
