Interest Learning Center for Materials:
Many teachers have a Preschool Science Interest Center set up in their classrooms. How should you set yours up? What materials should you have? What do you, as the teacher, need to do - if anything- to prepare for an activity that will take place in your Science Center?
WHERE should you set your Preschool Science Interest Center up in your classroom? GREAT question! Here is an article on Classroom Design that will help you with the where and how of interest center set up!
Planning Preschool Science in Small Spaces
What if you don't have the room for a Science Interest Center? Having limited space does not mean you need to limit the opportunities for science in your classroom! You can still offer daily science investigations!
Science is all about observing, investigating and problem solving through hands-on activities. Preschoolers are naturally curious about the world around them and providing preschool science activities gives us the opportunity to help them dig deeper into their learning!
