Kindergarten Science Curriculum

If there is one thing I’ve learned in my 9 years of homeschooling it’s that Science doesn’t have to be daunting….it really doesn’t!  That is why I’m thrilled to announce the release of a brand new series called, “Smart Start Science.”
Experiments for St. Patrick’s Day
Smart Start Science is a new and engaging series of Low-Prep, Hands-On experiments and activities designed for K-2 students. This specific pack, “Experiments for St. Patrick’s Day” includes five complete experiments and follow up activities that are sure to add a little color to your classroom.
St. Patrick’s Day Experiments:
-Cultivating Clovers (Plant & Life Cycle)
-Traveling Rainbow (Capilary Action & Color Mixing)
-How Much Gold Can One Boat Hold (Engineering & Data Graphing)
-Lucky Scoop (Prediction, Graphing and Data Analysis)
-Super Shiny Coins (Chemical Mixing & Reactions)
Experiment #1: Cultivating Clovers
Students plant their own pot of clovers, track growth and learn the plant life-cycle.
Experiment #2: The Traveling Rainbow
With this super simple experiment children learn about capillary action and color mixing.
Experiment #3
 Students build three different boats and put them to the test.
The boat that holds the most gold wins!
Experiment # 4: Super Shiny Gold
Leprechauns want their gold super shiny and this experiment will lead students through a test to see which chemicals will react together to make the perfect cleaning solution.
Experiment #5: Lucky Scoop
Students estimate and graph how many lucky marshmallows they find in their scoop!

    This so adorable! It is a unique way to present tou your kids the nature of the science. At this age children only know the profession of doctor, and not other scientists. It’s a great way to learn that there is something more. My niece loves flowers very much and she would like to have a microscope!!!
