Elephant Toothpaste Project

Best for Ages:


+3

Materials:


Items likely found around home 

Summary:


This has been on our to-do list for quite some time. I am not sure who originally posted about Elephant Toothpaste, but I've seen it around several places and have been wanting to try it for several months now. With a name like Elephant Toothpaste - how could it not be awesome, right? Anyway, I finally got around to shopping for the necessary ingredients a week ago and oh my goodness am I glad I did because this was such a fun demonstration!!! When it comes to science at our house I mainly focus on child-led explorations, challenges, and experiments (you can find over 100 of those in our new science book), but I also like to throw in a few fun demonstrations such as this one here and there. These demos are famous for a reason - they're pretty remarkable!

Jelly Bean Experiment

Best for Ages:


+3

Materials:


Likely found around home but may require some purchases

Summary:


Sometimes trying to find an engaging activity at home or in the classroom can get a little overwhelming. When gathering materials or planning the procedure takes time away from our family or our students, we need to simplify. One of the best hacks I found was to use resources I already have on hand. During Christmas that may mean exploring our senses with some holiday goodies. During the spring we can enjoy investigating in our own backyard or playground. And during Easter that means using leftover egg fillers to have some scientific fun.

Easy Preschool Ocean Unit

Best for Ages:


+2

Materials:


May require some purchases


Summary:


Both of my kids love learning about ocean life. My oldest has been able to explore this topic with several of our home school curriculum choices through the years, but my preschooler hasn’t been as lucky. She’s just as interested as her big brother, but we’ve barely touched on ocean life through her curriculum in these early years of homeschooling. That’s left me putting together my own preschool ocean unit to help her explore on her level.
