Benefits of Christmas Experiments in Preschool

Christmas STEM Projects for Preschool

Preschoolers love learning and exploring the world, which means that science and STEM are perfect during the preschool years!

In the preschool classroom, STEM is more about exploring senses and reactions than learning “hard science” facts, but the goal of STEM in the preschool years is to foster a sense of wonder and awe at the world and a desire to know more about it!

During the holiday season, it is fun for preschoolers to tie holiday themes into their science lessons (and let’s face it, it’s also fun for teachers and caregivers, too!).
