Exploring Rocket Ships

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!

Preschool Science: Root Study Experiment

In college, I majored in Art Education. I always wanted to be an art teacher, but the Lord had other plans. Six out of the eight years I spent as a public school teacher, I was a science teacher.
