Kindergarten Science and Thinking Skills Worksheets
Kindergarten Science Skills
This page includes kindergarten worksheets related to science and thinking skills. The kindergarten child is beginning to observe the world around them, ask questions, and solve problems independently. Providing your child with opportunities to observe nature and asking open ended questions provides them with the opportunity to think about what they are observing, what may happen next, and what actually happens next. Open ended play also fosters imagination and creativity thus increasing critical thinking skills.
It is our hope that the worksheets here will be an extension to the learning that is currently taking place in kindergarten. These kindergarten worksheets are intended to enhance your child's skills and introduce new concepts in a fun, stress-free manner.
