Physics Experiments for Kindergarten
Physics is the study of energy, mass, motion, and how they all fit together. Any physics activity will focus on how motion and energy work together and covers basic topics like gravity, inertia, acceleration, and how energy is made.
These physics experiments for kids are perfect for learning about how the world works in a fun and hands-on way. Introducing physics to Kindergartners in this way will help them view science as something exciting to learn about throughout their schooling years.
