Can You Follow The Puzzle? Fun Preschool Science Experiments

Welcome back to another week of Playful Preschool. This week’s preschool lesson plan is centered around puzzles. Yesterday, I shared with you our Rescue St Patrick’s Day preschool activity. Today to continue with our St Patrick’s Day theme, we shall be doing a preschool science experiment.

We love preschool science! Today we tried something new with our preschool science experiments, I tried to see if my daughter could conduct an experiment by putting together the puzzle that contains the instructions

J will be putting together a puzzle that has the instructions for her experiment. Once she has put the puzzle together, she should be able to figure out how to conduct the experiment- I hope.

What You Need

  • Baking soda Circles
  • Vinegar
  • Squirt Bottle
  • Science Puzzle (click to download)
  • Scissors
  • Small bowl
  • Curious preschooler

Directions

Print your instruction sheet and cut it up into 6 or more pieces depending on your preschooler’s level.

Prepare the area for your preschooler to conduct the science experiment. Place the small bowl on the table, the squirt bottle filled with vinegar, the baking soda circles. See below for instructions to make yours.

Hand your preschooler the puzzle pieces and ask him to put it together. Once its together, tell them to do the experiment.

You will want to be there in case your preschooler wants more vinegar and just for the sake of ensuring that everything is going according to plan.

What They Will Learn

J has done similar experiments to see the reaction of vinegar with baking soda  but I have always been the one to say step by step what to do. This time she did it herself and the experiment was successful! Proud mama right here.

If this is the first time your preschooler is learning about this type of reaction, simply inform them that this is what happens when vinegar and baking soda are mixed together, they fizz.

I love the puzzle you created to teach sequencing with baking soda science. That is a great way to reinforce the lesson.

What a fun way to work on spatial reasoning and science in the same activity!
