Preschool Spring Science at the Library

Published April 23rd, 2019 in Education-AmeriCorps

This spring, preschoolers from Douglas County have been learning about science in our new free program at the library! The first week, we learned about spring weather by making a rain cloud in a cup and creating our own rainbows. The following week, we learned about plants in springtime and how they grow. We talked about how plants need soil, sun, and water, played in a sensory bin, and even planted our own seeds to take home and watch grow.

We have two more weeks of this program and we can’t wait to learn more about spring science. On April 25th, we will learn all about animals and on May 9th we will explore insects – hope to see you there!
