From sensory explorations of the objects in our world to the testing of materials and observing interactions of different kinds of matter, participants will experience pre-chemistry activities and experiments to use in early childhood or elementary classrooms. We will learn about choosing and caring for objects we use every day, recycling and atoms and molecules, for those children ready for more abstraction. These activities provide an important foundation both for chemistry and for understanding the nature of the objects in our everyday lives.
