Your Home~Grown Primary Earth Science Lab


Our Earth Is An Awesome Planet!

Seeing the wonders of the Earth through a child’s 5 senses is almost like experiencing our planet for the first time. Ahhhh yes!

The Earth Science Inquiries of the Universe, Weather & Earth Materials will help expand your child’s observation skills as well as the reasoning skills of cause/effect, compare/contrast as well as  inferencing. & drawing conclusions.

I included lots of opportunities for interactive, hands-on activities & experiments that will, hopefully be only the beginning of your child’s explorations & discoveries!


Rocks, Soil & Water Are EVERYWHERE on Earth!

Are the same rocks everywhere? Why is soil different in different places on Earth? How does some water get salty & some water is fresh?

Inquiry, exploration & discovery of the world  is critical to the healthy growth & development of your child. 

Engaging and encouraging investigations (instead of trying to explain everything) using experiments is a meaningful & relevant way to introduce the many concepts of scientific discovery.

It can promote lots of brain activity, help build problem solving skills, increase her/his understanding of the world as well as equip your child with the ability to practice these methods in a variety of ways throughout his/her lifetime.  

Major added bonus~ it’s A LOT OF FUN !!

Your Home~Grown Primary Science Lab for the Earth Science of the Universe,  Temperature & Weather of the Seasons as well as the Properties & Uses of: Soil, Rocks/Minerals & Water  is one of the 4 main Sciences your child will be learning as a Primary grade school student. I created hands-on, interactive “labs” for the other 3 Sciences~Physical, Life  & Ecology~so you & yours can enjoy more exploration & discovery time together.

This 46 ~ page (includes front & back manual covers) download,  copy & printable resource in an 8″x11″ PDF will prepare and reinforce the concepts your child is & will be learning in the classroom, while having LOTS of fun with you !

Tips & Ideas

Prepare for the Investigations by reading, gathering & organizing all materials, tools & supplies beforehand. Involve your curious scientist in as much of this process as possible. Make it his/her lab with your role being the “Safety Inspector”.

Check out the Activities to decide which ones are age-appropriate for your child. If you have multi-age children, encourage them to share & monitor the younger ones.

Questions, experiments & explorations are CRITICAL to a successful learning environment. Be an  interactive guide & encourage her/him on the path of discovery.

Let your child (ren) set the pace. Go off on those tangents for teachable moments. Promote Inventions!!!

I hope you & yours enjoy these Science Lab Investigations as much as I enjoyed creating it.

I’d love to hear from you!
