Hands-On Science and Math

by Beth R. Davis
ITEM #: 4110002

Encourage young investigators to feel, listen, smell, taste, and see their way to discovery by seamlessly infusing math and science throughout the school day! As you incorporate all five senses into learning experiences, you will give little innovators the opportunity to observe and explore the world around them.
The activities in Hands-On Science and Math: Fun, Fascinating Activities for Young Children will help you plan engaging science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) lessons that will excite children and foster their critical thinking. Children can experience the thrill of scientific inquiry through simple experiments:

  • Launching Recycled Rockets
  • Shake and Freeze: Homemade Ice Cream
  • Look Out! Volcano Erupting
  • The Mystery of Suspensions
  • Go, Car, Go! Simple Machines and Inclined Planes

Designed to work with easy-to-find materials, the Hands-On Science and Math activities are inexpensive and uncomplicated, yet they lay the groundwork for understanding more complex STEM concepts later on.
