Did you know you can check out Science Experiment Kits from the library? Thanks to the students at the Texas Academy of Mathematics and Science (TAMS) at UNT, the Denton Public Library has 25 different Experiment Kits available at all 3 branches.
I took one of these kits home to my 5 year old daughter, and it was a big hit. The kits include 3 different experiments each, and instructions that were simple enough for her to understand. Most of the supplies needed to do the experiments are common household items, if not; they are included in the box. The TAMS students who created the boxes even included an explanation of “The Science Behind the Magic”. It’s great to see her learning and engaged over the summer break! So far, Light and Color and Music have been her favorites. Let us know which ones you have tried, and how your experiments worked out.
