Physical Science

Physical Science Activities for Classroom Interest Areas

Physical science is the study of the physical properties of materials. Young children learn the properties of matter by learning about weight, color, size, and other observable characteristics. This does not just happen in the science area or during science lessons. Provide children with ramps and balls; wheels and levers; magnets and magnetic accessories; and children will do these discoveries all day, every day, inside and outside the classroom!
