First Grade Science

STEM learning (science, technology, engineering and math) is crucial for helping kids to understand how things work in the natural world. You can support this early on with these first grade science resources. Not sure how to begin? Try our candle burning experiment or our chicken life cycle experiment. If your kid is ready to explore the next level of scientific concepts, try our second grade science resources.
