This month is brought to you by the letter S for SCIENCE
What is Science?
If you asked Sid the Science Kid, he would say...a simple definition is the study of the world through observations, experiments, and measurement.
Early childhood science education teaches pre-math concepts and encourages critical thinking to develop inquiry, reflection and analysis skills on nature and our environment in children. Technology along with hands-on activities are a great resource for introducing early childhood science concepts. Encourage your child to explore the world around them and become a little scientist!
Exploring weather and seasons through science experiments and activities are a great way to show your child the fun side of science.
Try these science activities at home or outdoors and get your little one thinking about science:
- Watch this Rain Observationvideo from Sid the Science Kid to explore weather around you.
- Try the Rain, Rain, Don't Go Away activity after watching a Sid the Science Kid video.
- Play Gerald's Weather Wheel ( an intereactive game) to practice determining the proper attire for different types of weather. Gerald helps the user to understand when they have dresed.
