Preschoolers will learn about the parts of a tree and will use cut up Christmas tree trunks (recycled from 140 trees) to smell the pine, count the rings, order them from smallest to largest, use a tape measure to find the diameter, and after building towers, measure the height.
Preschoolers extend a prior sorting experience by classifying different items into groups. Each child is given a different tray of items and need to think critically to determine ways to sort their tray.
Preschoolers learn what to do in case of a fire. They also will learn that firefighters wear special masks to help them breathe during a fire. They will count to see how many seconds it will take to extinguish a flame once the oxygen has burned out of a small, medium, and large jar.
In this preschool science lab activity our preschoolers learned about the role of a Paleontologist in finding fossils. They extracted plastic dinosaurs and other items from a pretend fossil. Afterward, they sorted their findings by attribute.
Preschoolers learn about properties of water and things water is used for. They also test items to explore whether the items sink or float, count the totals of their findings, review the “S” and “F” sounds, and discuss hot and cold.
