It is time for Mom’s Library! Today we share science topics you can explore with kids in summer. These topics are fun to explore all year long, but are easier or more fun to do them in summer, such as star gazing, studying bugs. My favorite is the experiment about sun light and light refraction. It is so cool to watch the effect and I am sure kids will love it.
10 Science Topics for Kids to Explore in Summer
Learn about sun light and light refraction, and I am sure kids will be amazed by what they will see in this cool experiment. In addition, we have a free app with tons of sun related science activities.
Learn the phases of the moon. Make sure visit the linked site, as there are many activities helping kids learn about the phases of the moon. It is so nice to walk outside and watch the moon change everyday after learning about the reason behind the change.
Learn about nature ecosystem on the hiking trail or a creek. Here are some tips to incorporate science into the nature walk.
While playing outside, find some examples of camouflage. It is easier to see them once you learn to pay attention.
Learn about birds with this set of learning materials, and this handy free app lets you search bird information by features like color, size, wing shape. A great tool to encourage observation and research skills.
