General information about our activity books

Kids science activities

Kids science activities in the early elementary grades should contain a very short lesson and lots of time for students to complete the activities. There are fifteen different activities in each of our activity books that are easy to do and fully illustrated with color pictures.

The activities in this section contain Earth Science activities that are appropriate for Preschool – 2nd grade students. Teachers that have multiple grades in their classroom will find the books in this section fun and easy to do for their students. Each activity contains a mini-lesson that should be incorporated with the activity.

Children’s science experiments

Children’s science experiments are fun and easy to do while students learn fun facts about science. Learn about growing salt crystals on a toothpick, testing the hardness of rocks making a sedimentary sandwich are all activities included in our Rock Cycle activity book that children learn through simple science experiments.

Our Volcano activity book includes an experiment where students drop popcorn onto a sheet of paper to discover how a cinder cone forms a steep sided volcano. PreK through high school students love this activity. They especially enjoy the activity because they can eat the popcorn after finishing the activity.
