We are in full Valentine’s Day mode over here! We enjoyed the Sugar and Yeast Science Experiment earlier this week so much, we decided to find some more Valentine’s Day Science Experiments to try out!
Before we get into all of the ideas, I want to share a sample of my latest unit study with you: Valentine’s Day School!
In Valentine’s Day School, you’ll learn about topics like symbolism, love languages, how Valentine’s Day is celebrated around the world, and all about Esther A. Howland, the Mother of the American Valentine. You’ll also dive into fun, hands-on projects that cover a wide range of subjects—like our sugar and yeast science experiment!
Want to take a peek inside? Grab these FREE Printable Valentine’s Day Cards that also includes a sample of Valentine’s Day School. The cards will be emailed to you instantly, and you’ll be brought to the How Wee Learn shop so you can take a closer look at Valentine’s Day School. Get yours here:
