Inspired-By-Dr. Seuss Science Experiments and Activities!

Classic books by Dr. Seuss are SO much fun to read and use as themed units!  One of my preschoolers' favorite things to do when we read books (including Dr. Seuss books) is a related science experiment or activity! Pairing a science project with the books is an excellent way to tie concepts together in a way the kids easily relate to.

To celebrate Dr. Seuss's birthday this year, I will be sharing science activities that go with different books by Dr. Seuss!  Pop back to the blog frequently because we'll be counting ddown to his birthday with reading and science activities!!  I will be linking them all to this page so you can check back and get the whole collection!

These are simple science activities that use supplies you have around the house and introduce a variety of science topics.  I recommend reading the related book first, reviewing the connection with the science activity, and then getting started!  I'll be sorting them by Dr. Seuss books!
