Learn About Space With These Fun Science Activities You Can Do at Home
To some degree, all children are natural-born scientists! Even as newborns, every day brings new opportunities to discover, explore, and learn about this big world we are a part of.
Over time, as children’s observation skills develop, they begin to recognize patterns, and once they spot a pattern, they will likely see them everywhere. For instance, recognizing that the sun sets and rises every day is just one of the many ways little learners utilize their natural observation skills to find patterns!
When children start to recognize the Sun, the Moon, and the stars in the night sky, it is a great opportunity to begin fostering excitement around space and science. Nothing ignites curiosity or sparks the imaginations of young children quite like learning about the wonders of space.
With engaging, hands-on science activities kids of all ages can develop a better understanding of the universe around them and a love for learning – through play!
