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.
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
- Squirt Bottle
- Science Puzzle (click to download)
- Small bowl
- Curious preschooler
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.
Don’t forget to check out what the others have for this awesome theme.
