This engaging unit features a variety of excellent digital and physical resources. This guide contains clickable links that will take you to videos, games, pictures, art projects, activities and printable pages for your child to complete. Prior to beginning the unit I highly recommend reading the detailed day plans for five days at a time so that you have the opportunity to print off any needed materials.
The book, Starting with Science: Solids, Liquids and Gases, features many wonderful experiments that will help to illustrate the concepts being studied in a fun and interactive way. I recommend reading through each scheduled experiment at the beginning of the week to ensure that you have the supplies required to conduct it.
