M Story Time Science Experiment

This week for story time I wanted to make sure I did something with measuring for our science experiment (because what a perfect thing to go along with the letter “m”). Our library bought these fun graduated cylinders for measuring and comparing liquid volume. So I pulled them out. And got a pitcher of water…

L Story Time Science Experiment

The science experiment for this particular week was a little tricky…mostly because it was the week of Valentine’s Day and I wanted to do something that had to do with Valentines. So I decided to make the science experiment a Valentine from Freddy and me. So I made a Valentine and put it in a…

K Story Time Science Experiment

This week for the science experiment I really needed to do something simple and fun. So I pulled out one of my favorite things: Foam blocks! Then I told my story time kiddos that we were going to play “King of the Mountain” with the blocks. I told them it was a game I used…

J Story Time Science Experiment

So for my STEM element after story time I pulled out the bucket of balls and the parachute Then I told the kids to see if they could make the balls “jump” on the parachute. It was fun to see the kids enjoy what the balls were doing thanks to the parachute. I also talked…

H Story Time Science Experiment

Last week I did my “H” story time. And for the science experiment I really, really wanted something to do with the letter “H”. And I finally remembered that horses (something that starts with the letter “H”) are measured in “hands” (another thing that starts with the letter “H”). So I knew that I wanted…

G Story Time Science Experiment

One of the biggest things that I think about when I think about science is Gravity. So of course for the letter “G” I wanted to do something simple (for the preschoolers) that had to do with gravity. So I had a nice bucket of balls handy. And I had a good amount of rocks…

F Story Time Activity

Did you notice that I didn’t put that this was a science activity this week? Mostly it is because I realized that I want to do more STEM things, and not always just the “science” part of it. And also because I needed to do something that worked with library trick-or-treating since last week was…

E Story Time Science Experiment

For this particular STEM element at the end of story time I wanted to do something with evaporation. Fortunately I found this link about how to make rain in a jar. I did talk about the fact that this is how rain works (and the how of how it works), but I did emphasize the…

D Story Time Science Experiment

So this week for my science experiment I wanted kids to experiment with drops. So I had some turkey basters. (Although, the second day that I did story time I only used the turkey basters for another water part…this part was too much for my first round of story time kids to easily do…so I…

C Story Time Science Experiment

For the “C” story time science experiment I stuck with the counting theme that I love so much for the letter “C” week. I got these color counting bears and these color bowls at Utah Idaho Supply. Kids would pick a color and sort the bears and then count them once they had all their…
