For the littlest scientists, the whole
wide world can be a laboratory for learning. Nurture their natural curiosity
with this treasury of 89 hands-on science activities specifically designed for
children ages 3–7.

The activities are grouped into seven
stimulating topic areas: the senses, weather, physical science,
creepy-crawlies, water and water mixtures, seeds, and nature walks.

Because the activities have been
field-tested by more than a thousand teachers over ten years, you’ll find this
collection unusually easy to use in a variety of settings, including primary
schools, preschool programs and day care. In addition to clear background and a
master materials list, you get step-by-step procedures and comments and
questions to pose to children.

Nearly all activities include a
reproducible Family Science Connection to send home so the whole family can
share a great learning experience.
