Stories and Science Experiments - Read & Experiment!

Welcome to my new bookshelf for Stories & Science!! This collection is full of science experiments, STEM, and STEAM activities that go with picture books and storybooks! It's science filled, book-based science projects and activities with learning adventures!

When we have a rough morning or our schedule is off, my favorite "recovery" lesson is to read a book (usually a picture book, but sometimes a longer story) and do a science experiment or activity that ties into it. Everyone gets involved, everyone relaxes, everyone has fun, and we've gently re-entered a learning zone. We love it so much that our "stories and science" collection has grown pretty big!

This is a collection of science experiments, activities, projects, and demonstrations that I have shared with books here on Preschool Powol Packets during the last few years. I've grouped them in two ways: First, in pictures by science project...just click on the picture to get all the details! Below the images is a list of all the projects, alphabetically, by book...just scroll down to see it.
