The kitchen is a natural source of science exploration and a great place for young children to develop and practice their science process skills. These easy-to-do activities require few materials, address the National Science Education Standards, introduce basic science processes, and cover such topics as simple chemistry and healthy eating habits. They also incorporate the use of science journals and provide art and literature connections. While these activities were done in the classroom, they also work well as home science experiences for parents to do with their children.
