I love teaching science to preschoolers. PreK science is all about asking questions, compiling what we already know, making a prediction about what will happen, then testing it out. That’s how basic science experiments for preschoolers are and should be. Below you will find a great list of simple but worthwhile PreK science experiments you can try with your class.

Color Mixing Trays – this is a great way of experimenting at free choice. What color will it make? Let’s find out!
The Power of Wind ( 2 different experiments)
Cloud in A Jar is a great science demo more than an experiment for preschoolers because it brings something out of reach into their classrooms.
Sink of Float is a classic science experiment for preschoolers but just because you have done this 1000 times doesn’t mean your students have ever done it.
