STEAM: Layers of Nature Jar

It's Dirt Adventure week in our EcoVenture box from Experience Early Learning. Playing in our dirt box is one of my kids' favorite activities and when we can take dirt and turn it into a science experiment- even better! My teacher guide suggested a STEAM Activity called Layers of Nature. Instead of putting it in a bin, I added some mason jars so my kids could see their layers and put them on our...

STEAM: Making Moon Craters

This month our learning box from Experience Early Learning has transformed us into Space Explorers, and you know that means we have to blast off to the moon!

What's not to wonder about the moon?! As an Experience Early Learning...
