Children learn best through hands-on exploration, observation, and discovery. With more than 100 activities, The Preschool Scientist gives children the opportunity to actively engage, experiment, create, and discover the exciting world of science. Using a unique inquiry-based approach, these activities explore science through learning centers, integrating this important subject into the entire classroom. Each of the activities has “Keep it Simple” and “Add a Challenge” sections so teachers can adjust the difficulty to their unique classrooms.

Organized by theme, chapters include:
·    Alike and Different
·    Exploring Motion
·    Exploring Change
·    Exploring Tools
·    Working with Water
·    Light and Shadows
·    Getting to Know Our World

With this hands-on approach, children will have fun developing problem-solving skills while becoming comfortable with exploring their world.
