Science and Experiments in the Kindergarten Classroom

Science is not only a fun and engaging way for students to get involved in their learning, it is also valuable in promoting critical thinking, collaboration, and student-centered learning. Science and experiments help teachers to incorporate differentiated teaching techniques like visualization and hands-on learning and foster independence. Almost any experiment can be tweaked to fit the needs of even the youngest of learners.
