As the 31 Days of Love Guest Post series continues, I realised that I actually have a whole set of fabulous Valentines Day Science Projects to share with you here on Red Ted Art!! There are so many fantastic bloggers out there, that really know how to make science fun!! Science with kids – especially young, does not have to be complicated. It is more about getting them investigating, observing, asking questions. Making some predictions and then comparing predictions with outcomes. These are not only great traits for a scientists, but also are great life skills that can be applied to many a situation.
I also wanted to give this absolutely AMAZING STEAM Valentines Day ebook a mention!!! What is there not to **love** (hehehe pun intended) about this beautiful book? The BEST STEAM projects by the loviest bloggers. Well photographed and layed out. Easy to print and browse at home or in the classroom. Get your copy today (US/ UK)!
