Preschool Discovery: Magnets

Bring your preschooler to the Wollaston Branch to play with and learn about magnets this coming Wednesday! December's Preschool Discovery evening is all about magnets and magnetism, so we'll be exploring what is and isn't magnetic, how magnets push and pull at each other, and how magnets can affect things around them.

Mad Science Returns in November!

Have you been missing our monthly Mad Science programs? They're back this weekend with two programs, one for 3-5 year olds and one for 6-10 year olds. This year we're handling registration differently, so read on for details!

  • Adventures in Air, for 3-5 year olds will begin at 9:30 on 11/15
  • Electricity, for 6-10 year olds will begin at 10:30 on 11/15

Preschool Discovery: Building

Did you miss us this week for Preschool Discovery at Wollaston? Never fear! Check out some of these fun building and construction activities at home!

Preschool Discovery: Your Senses

Drop into the Wollaston Branch this Wednesday the 8th any time between 6:30 and 7:30 for our new science program: Preschool Discovery!

Preschool Discovery is a brand new program for parents and children in preschool (and early elementary - we won't make the kindergarteners leave!) to explore science and math topics at the library. Each month we'll have a new topic and three new activities to try at the Wollaston Branch. Feel free to come at any time during the hour our materials will be out and try one or more of the activities we've prepared.

Fizz, Boom, Read: Water

Let's end the summer with a splash by exploring water! We're lucky here in Quincy that we have so much water in our city. Take a walk down Wollaston Beach and see if you can figure out if the tide is coming in or going out (hint: look for wet sand beyond the water) and how high the tide gets. Or look around Black's Creek and see what animals are hanging around the water there. Then head home and try some watery activities. 

Fizz, Boom, Read: Weather

Hot or cool, sunny or rainy, the weather changes all the time. Did it rain today? Why wouldn't it be snow in the summer? Have you ever looked up and watched the clouds? Think about the weather this week. Try keeping a record of the weather in your science journal and keep it going into the fall. Watch the temperature get cooler as the days go by. 

Fizz, Boom, Read: Air

You can't see it but it's all around you. What is it? Air! We breathe it and fly through it and use it to generate electricity when it's moving. There's a whole lot of it and it's everywhere you go. Even though you can't see it, air is something you can observe with simple experiments and activities about air pressure, flight and wind. Try some and learn about this super essential gas!

Fizz, Boom, Read: Math

Explore numbers this week with math activities. Math isn't just addition and subtraction problems. Math goes into buildings, cars, time, anything with numbers or shapes, and those are all around us every day. Take a look around your home and see what shapes you can see. Try using a ruler or tape measure to measure things in your home or yard. Measure yourself! Try now and then again at the end of the summer, keep a log in your science journal. 

Fizz, Boom, Read: Space

No, you can't just pop into outer space but you can do some fun activities and experiments at home without going into orbit. Take a look in the night sky and try spotting some constellations. Can you find another planet from our solar system? Our neighbors, Mars and Venus? Check out our moon. Did you know the craters on our moon have names? Learn about the International Space Station and the Hubble Telescope.
