Often people think about science as something you teach in Jr High or High School and not about Pre-K or even Kindergarten. That's disappointing!
Science is a great way to engage people of ALL ages in learning and with thinking things through. It's also built around it's okay to be wrong and make mistakes, making your best guess, and then seeing what happens.
And it's amazing fun to see what happens. Will it sink or will it float, will it change color, will it foam, will it stick, will it fly - those are just a few of the questions!
What's great about the way we do science lessons at Over The Bay Pre-K is we use materials that are often already in the home, or are very easy to find, and they are affordable too. And you can choose to just watch the lesson, and enjoy the journey, or you can grab the materials and try it yourself at home after the lesson too.
It's a fantastic way for your child to really engage in a fun activity, one they will remember, and want to talk about - and the side effect is learning.
Until next time, take care of you!
Director of Over The Bay Pre-K
