Science in Preschool means more hands-on exploring, experimenting, and discovering. Children learn science by engaging in activities such as observing the growth of grass, watching butterflies emerge from their chrysalides, studying and researching ponds or owls. They care for animals in the classroom, observe growth in themselves and others. When children cook or bring snow into the room and watch it melt, they are gaining an understanding of changes. Other science activities include using magnets, color wheels, and familiarizing themselves with scientific apparatus. Older children may take trips to the park to observe seasonal changes. Their observations lead to “scientific” predictions and eventually to finding ways to record their observations.
