Science Is Simple contains 250 activities spanning 39 kid-pleasing science concepts. From magnets to bubbles, insects to volcanoes, there are experiments to interest each and every child.

About the Author:

Peggy Ashbrook has been teaching science to preschoolers since 1988 when she became a registered family home childcare provider. Based on her experiences as a parent, family home childcare provider, and preschool teacher, Peggy developed and teaches a preschool science course to introduce two-, three-, and four-year-old children to scientific inquiry. Her goal is to encourage children to wonder and to look for answers themselves. She conducts workshops for teachers who work with young children to promote teaching science in their classrooms.
