Kids to have fun learning Science.

Science Games and Activities Online. Interactive science games, home science experiments etc. There are plenty of resources online and this lens will lead you to them.

Science and be fun. Science teaches kids about the world around them. Science experiments are exciting. Teaching kids science can be fun. Teachers and learners can have fun together with science.

Starting from the basics of learning about shapes and colors and moving on to learn about ourselves, the plants and animals around us. Learning about space, about different Science processes and reaction, about electricity etc. Science is a very interesting subject for kids because learning Science is learning about life.

Learning Science is Learning about lifeWhat could be more interesting than that.

Home Science Experiment - Germinating Bean Seeds

Watching plants grow is one of the best and easiest Science Experiments you can do at home with kids.

Here is a step-by-step picture guide of the Germinating Bean Seeds experiment we did at home during the children's school holidays. See our pictures from Day 1 to Day 7 to see how the bean seeds grew.

Home Science Experiment - Make your own rainbow

Here is a step-by-step video on how you can make your own rainbow in a simple science experiment you can do at home. The rainbow colors does not look so nice on the video but I've tried this experiment at home with my kids before. They were thrilled to see the rainbow reflected on the wall. They have been asking me to do it with them again ever since. You should try it. It is a very simple yet exciting science experiment for young kids. All you need is a tray of water, a mirror and a torch.

The place to go to satisfy curious minds

If you have a child whose conversation often starts with "Mummy, why does................" then you should lead them to Discovery Kids to have some of these questions answered:

Are bats really blind?
Why are eggs egg shaped?
Is the world too crowded?
Why are mosquitoes so annoying?
Why do we really need trees?

I absolutely love the Discovery Kids Tell Me Section. Plus they have great space and solar system photos and a very interesting section about the human body systems.
