Science For Curious Kindergarteners

My students need science enrichment hands-on activities to encourage questions and understanding about the world around them. The STEM classroom bundle will cover many of the learning goals in our science curriculum.

My Students

What's more exciting than beginning school for the first time? I have a class of wonderful, curious, and eager to learn kindergarten students. My class consists of second language learners, speech students, and a mix of students who have attended preschool and some who have not.

This year has been a great adventure for my five and six year old students.

These students get so excited when they find out more about the world around them through science exploration.

Welcome to my classroom! Welcome to an environment where we are learning about the world around us every day! Welcome to the curious minds in kindergarten!

My Project

My kindergarten class is filled with curious kids, excited about learning about the world around them...and always filled with questions. By adding science resources to my classroom, I will be able to enrich my units of study in science.

My requested project includes a variety of fun, engaging hands-on materials for the curious minds of my kindergarten students.

During the school year we cover senses, weather, the sky, machines, motion, magnets, and animals. I am excited about adding these games, charts, activities and even the chance to watch the metamorphosis of a butterfly to my classroom learning. Thank you for your support!
