Have you ever wondered how tall buildings don’t fall over? Or how a pole when placed in the ground doesn’t do the same? J has been quite curious about tall buildings and skyscrapers lately and so I decided to do a few quick preschool science experiments on how buildings work. This post is a part of the Kids STEM Activities A-Z Series hosted by Little Bins for Little Hands.
What You Need for these Preschool Science Experiments
- building blocks (the long ones)
- square blocks
- Snow (dirt or sand)
- container to house experiment
1) Place your container on a flat surface and then fill about 3/4 of it with snow.
2) Ask your preschooler to place 1 long building block in the snow to stand up. DO NOT specify how deep they should put it.
3) Ask your preschooler to place the second building block deeper than they did the first one.
