Fall: A Great Time for Science!

There’s no denying it! We love, love, love the season of fall. While the calendar may suggest new beginnings start on January 1, there’s just something about moving from summer to autumn to get you re-focused. Perhaps we feel that way because we’re teachers, and the fall signifies a new class, a new start to the school year, and a chance to begin again. Or maybe it’s the colors, the food, and the smells.

As we live in a part of the world with four seasons, we enjoy watching nature make its transition. And the science! What a time to make science come alive! From fun fall activities to Halloween science (check out our showstopper in the experiment section that we've dubbed Wanda The Melting Witch), there are so many cool things for you to share with children!
