Science Lab at Home
June 15, 2011
Curiosity doesn’t end when the school bell rings. Nature fascinates my preschooler, so we have been playing with simple experiments at home. For example, we set toys in the bathtub to discover if they would float or sink. We also dyed a white carnation purple by letting the flower drink colored water.
Recently, my four-year-old learned about her fingerprints, her sense of balance, and her vision by doing experiments from The Amazing Human Body by Shar Levine and Body: Discovery Starts with a Single Word by Penelope Arlon. Your children can indulge their senses of wonder too. Pick your favorite topic, check out library books, and let your budding scientists bloom!
