Superpowers and Science Lessons with Preschoolers
Updated: Aug 17, 2020
As an Experience Early Learning Blog Ambassador, we receive the Experience Early Learning preschool curriculum in exchange for sharing our honest and authentic stories resulting from our personal experiences. As always, our opinions on amazing things for children are 100% our own. Keep in mind that all preschoolers do things in their own time and on their own terms. What one is ready for, another might not be. Please use your best judgement when planning activities for your children.
This has been such a fun week with Experience Early Learning (formerly Mother Goose time).
We learned about Super Strength and did a fun barbell craft. The kiddos loved personalizing their own barbells with markers. They were so creative and of course colorful too.
Another favorite topic this week was invisibility lesson and did a few different resist-style activities and read The Invisible Boy.
The preschoolers explored "Super Breath" and made wind paintings using paint and straws. This was probably my favorite topic. I loved the physics aspect of what we learned.
One of my favorite things about Experience Early Learning is how everything coordinates so beautifully and there's very little planning required.
I love that not only are we learning about superpowers, but we're also experimenting with important science concepts.
Preschoolers are curious by nature and activities like the ones we did this week are a great way to encourage a love of learning.
What happens when you color with white crayon then paint over it with watercolor?
What happens when you use your "super breath" to move paint on your paper?
Questions like these tend to draw in kiddos and get them interested in the topic as well as teaching them about the scientific method.
Experience Early Learning (formerly Mother Goose Time) makes it so easy to teach children all about the world we live in and it's especially wonderful when both our toddler and preschool classes are learning about the same things but at their own level.
Don't forget to check back next week as we wrap up our Let's Be Superheroes theme and get started with a new school year and a new theme the following week.
