STEM education is thought of as relevant for first grade and up. But I believe STEM education starts as early as possible! I love doing experiments with my sons because it is growing their love of learning. They are seeing that learning is not just done within the walls of their school, but also at home. My middle son will start kindergarten in a year, so I am looking for fun STEM activities for us to do together. But as I looked at my own STEM activities, I realized only a handful were geared towards kindergarteners. So I decided to find some great STEM activities for Kindergarten, and create the a list for us to work through in the next year! Here is the list of STEM activities for Kindergarten!
