Science skills

Science Skills provide a range of activites that will develop investigative skills with young children. Each activity develops skills in areas such as investigating objects and materials, finding out about living things, looking at similarities and differences and asking questions about why things happen and how things work.

The activities include making a tent, racing marbles down a variety of ramps, cooking eggs in different ways and choosing the right tool for the job in a board game.
