Top Ten Easy Science Experiments For Kids

While math and reading are usually taught more actively at school and at home, there is one subject that is often underrated when it comes to everyday application: science. If you think about it, children ask questions all day, every day. From wondering about the sky and animals to food and clothing, a child’s curiosity is a great starting point to try some simple science projects that can let them experience learning in a new way.

When you introduce and bring to life the theoretical concepts of science, you are cultivating a child’s skills in communication, research, problem-solving and analytical thinking. Scientific observation and testing can develop their senses and awareness of the natural world. Since kids tend to be hands-on learners, interacting with their environment can help them understand how science influences nearly everything around them. Not to mention, conducting experiments is a great way to spend the day away from the television.

As a parent, it might seem easier to give your child a book or electronic device rather than a test tube or petri dish. However, science lessons don’t have to be expensive or time-consuming — mostly likely, you already have the tools to turn a trip to the park into a learning opportunity. For instance, explore the ground and texture of the trees with a magnifying glass, or study the stars in the backyard.

From life sciences to physical science to environmental and earth science, children can accumulate a vast knowledge of the world through their everyday interests and social activities. A child’s early experiences with experimentation could potentially lead to a career in biology, chemistry, physics, or engineering. With the sustainability and renewable energy industries continuing to grow, nurturing your little one’s curiosity can pave the way for a bright future.
