In this paper, I describe inexpensive and fun kindergarten science activities that scientists can bring into the classroom; each activity is aligned with Arizona state science standards. Additionally, since science often gets little time in kindergarten as teachers are focusing on early literacy and math skills, all science activities described are “value-added,” as they also incorporate a literacy or math standard as well. I describe simple assessments for each activity as well. Overall evaluation of activities is difficult because most kindergarteners are pre-writers and so we could not assign writing activities; however oral feedback that students were excited to perform science experiments and the teachers were happy to see that the students engaged in open ended thinking exercises.
