When I saw the theme this week Immediately thought Science Sparks and so I contacted Tara to check that it would be ok to use this as an opportunity to tell you about it! She very kindly said
‘ANYTHING which encourages kids’ learning and enjoyment of science as A-OK with me!’
So here it goes!
Science Sparks is a blog set up by myself and the lovely Emma from Mummymummymum. We did not know each other before blogging but as a result of it, have ventured into this project together. Basically we are both lovers of science (and I teach the subject by trade) and we wanted to put together a site whereby we can encourage parents to engage in science activities with their kids at home.
Here are some of the close-ups we have been up to!
Change the colour of flowers!
Make gorgeous Crystals!
Make an egg shell disappear without touching it!
Now most parents read, practice numeracy and literacy but Science tends to get forgotten. I don’t know whether this is because parents are nervous about it, or fear it too tricky or it is just not on the agenda, but the country is short of scientists so we all need to pull together and show kids what an amazing subject this is and from as early as pre-school!
Please do take the time to put over and see what is all about – you will find an abundance of activities, experiments and crafts, all science related to do over there, suited for most age groups!
