Benefits of Christmas Experiments in 4th Grade

4th graders are starting to decide who they are as people and really create a personal identity.

This makes it a perfec time to introduce them to a love of science. If you can show fourth graders how fun and exciting STEM can be, they may decide that science is for them, which means they may eventually earn a degree in a STEM field and use their knowledge and love of science wherever they go.

The benefits of a firm understanding of science from the early years cannot be overstated!
