Balance and Inquiry
Investigation simulates curiosity, and allows preschoolers to ask probing questions. As your preschooler investigates with the balance of plates and cups, they are demonstrating higher level thinking and creativity.
Preschoolers can begin to investigate balance with plastic/paper plates and cups.
By kindergarten, children will need to Identify real-life connections between words and their use. This activity will begin to activate preschooler minds for future connections with what they read and investigate.
Think about what you have in your home. Which objects will demonstrate balance and provide inquiry for your preschooler?
