Summertime Science for Preschoolers
Summer's in full swing and the temperature is creeping ever higher. Turn the heat to your advantage by engaging in a bit of science and math, summer style. Fill up the kiddie pool, gather a stash of preschool science equipment, and get ready to introduce your child to the power of hypothesis.
Science equipment? Hypothesis? Don't worry, we're not talking about beakers and goggles here. The only science equipment a preschooler needs for a little exploration is a pile of Tupperware, spoons, cups and various other containers snagged from your kitchen. And “hypothesis” is just a fancy word for scientific guess.
