How to use the Science Fun Kit

There are many ways that you can use this kit. You can use it in your classroom or use it at a family science fun night. Parents can also use many of the activities with their children at home.

If you choose to do a community event, below are some helpful hints to getting organized.

checkbox Get the community involved

Meet with other people and organizations in your community that are interested in supporting and celebrating literacy. Work together to plan the event. Ask businesses and organizations to sponsor your Family Science Night. They can donate money to buy prizes and provide snacks.
