Here are some science resources you can use to teach preschoolers:
|Picture books like In the Nest teach science using vivid illustrations and simple stories that are packed with information and don't speak down to the child.|
|Sharks is an extra durable lift-the-flap book that is great for hands-on learners. This entertaining book presents accurate information in bite sized pieces and uses engaging illustrations that children love!|
|The Flip Flap Body Book is one of my favorite books about the human body. This book uses fun, detailed illustrations to explain how senses work, what happens to food and how babies are made (on a preschoolers level, of course).|
