I just posted a great product with resources, including: fun activities, presentations, math worksheets with delightful illustrations, puzzles, a word wall in both English and Spanish, and a simple assessment, and a web page with much more.
I’m sharing some of the best engineering suggestions here.

A familiar game with a new twist.
Use very simple materials to meet the challenge of figuring out strategies for moving markers to get three in a row.
Use your detective skills to solve a Brain Box puzzle. Charts help you get started solving each mystery.
Use the clues provided by the Brainbashers site to piece together what actually happened at an event, gathering, or contest.
What to do if your child needs something to consider while waiting for the online class to start?
Need word puzzles that can be solved in a few moments of spare time or pondered for a day?
I’ve collected math and word puzzles just for you!
You might be familiar with the activity that moves your hair even if no one is touching it! Simply rub a balloon on a soft paper towel, cotton or wool shirt, and bring it near a person’s hair.
It helps if the person has fine hair, my husband’s is GREAT so I often draft him for this demonstration. He just loves it! ????
If you want more suggestions for playing around with static electricity while we wait out this virus event, here are suggestions from the Exploratorium.
I recently posted suggestions from Steve Spangler for bubbles.
My niece called for a bubble recipe as she played with her almost two-year old son and I thought it can be such a fun activity I’d find more resources for you.
Just like my last blog, my source is the Exploratorium Museum
I listed activities from simple materials to uncommon materials like dry ice.
One of my favorite science museums in the world is the Exploratorium in San Francisco.
They have been very generous and posted what they call snacks that feature simpler ways of creating many of the displays you’ll find at their fabulous museum.
I would like to share a few with you that focus on the topic of light.
Here’s the fifth in a series of fun, at home resources
I want to share from SteveSpanglerScience.com.
He’s posting fifty experiments for fifty days starting yesterday 3/23/20. Check them out!
I picked activities that worked for a variety
of ages and with simple materials you might find at home.
I suggest many extensions to challenge
kids as they do science (and make the activity
take a bit longer).
An extraordinary resource from Dorling Kindersley!
It has info about the arts, coding, history, language arts, math, science, sports, and MUCH more.
Great images and simple formatting can make this easy to share with children of any age!
