Preparing a science experiments basket over the week-end has helped tremendously in making the week's science activities go much smoother. What's a science experiments basket? In the science experiments basket, I gather ALL of the needed materials for ALL of the hands-on activities and experiments that will be completed in my children's science courses in a particular week.
Preparing a science experiments basket ahead of time also helps in making sure all of those fun hands-on activities in the science book don't get skipped because you just don't have a particular item right then. Science is so much more fun and educational when it is hands-on! By setting aside a time to prepare for all of the week's upcoming science activities, you can make sure you have the red cabbage, the balloon, the 2 plastic cups, the one gold brad......................and everything else you need for the week so you can see your kids do fun activities and love science!
