Welcome to Kids & Company's Family Resource Centre - Stream Activities!
Find a variety of experiments that you and your child can try at home. Children need time to become fully engaged in exploration and investigation. Asking open-ended questions is an important way to guide a child’s exploration. Try – What do you think will happen? What will you do next? What do you notice?
Why Does Soap Help Us Get Rid of Dirt and Viruses?
Your child will learn soap is special as it’s made up by molecules (teeny tiny little parts) that partly ‘stick’ to grease and partly ‘stick’ to water – so when you wash your hands, grease will stick to the soap molecules and then they both ‘stick’ to the water as it goes down the drain and away from your body!
