Create a Science Lab In Your Home!
Kids are natural scientists. They're full of questions about the world and how it works, and they're ready to find answers. Any scientist, they'll agree, should have her own laboratory! This space will give your child a nice place to work and will give you an easy place to store her experiments and activities. This is also a great way to encourage shared interest in kids of different ages.
Although scientific principles are the main focus of the lab, you child will learn all kinds of other skills by working with the science materials. Reading, writing, math, measuring, social development, social studies, language development and physical development are just a few areas that budding lab work will enhance.
