Today is National STEM Day! Try incorporating science with sound in the classroom for a unique STEM learning experience.Science
Children are fascinated by sounds. Whether it’s when a horn honks outside, or when an ever-alluring sound-oriented toy is around! It is therefore no surprise that children are curious about the science of sounds. How does that car’s horn make noise? Why are some sounds low and other ones high? What makes music so pleasant? And most importantly, how does sound work since we can’t see it?Science
Computation is one of the earliest math skills we learn. Children as young as two notice when something is more or less (especially when that something is food or toy related.) Young children are also concerned with division, seeking to have things split up equally in order to ensure fairness. With computation as the basis for all mathematical functions, it makes sense to begin teaching it to preschoolers through this natural curiosity about numbers. The question is how best to do it.Math
Play food is a fantastic way for children to play and learn! By playing with toy food, children are able to emulate the adults in their life by “cooking” and “baking” while also developing motor skills, logic skills, sense of cause and effect—the list goes on!Cooking

For teachers looking to build a well-rounded curriculum, Gryphon House authors have used their science and early childhood education expertise to develop more thoughtful science experiments for kids and toddlers. Our collection of experiments helps to encourage children to grow into young investigators through hands-on exploration exercises. For younger children, our preschool science experiments offer avenues to leverage children’s curiosity and energy. Through these exploration activities, children learn investigative concepts by moving around, and through traditional observation.
By using active, engaging science activities, children are encouraged to experiment, discover, and analyze. With Gryphon House’s books and free resources, educators can integrate STEM methods into daily or weekly activities. Our available resources also lead parents through easy to follow science activities for toddlers, in order to help foster their child’s continued science education at home. Take advantage of children’s natural curiosity through our free, hands-on science activities. Our explorations cultivate young minds by encouraging children to question and explore their surroundings.
