Storytime Share – Science: Physical Science 1

Standard: Science: Physical Science

Specific skill focused on: Gravity

Song: “Shake My Sillies Out” (Raffi, Singable Songs for the Very Young)

Book: I Fall Down by Vicki Cobb

Song: “Down Down Baby” (Laurie Berkner, Whaddaya Think of That?)

Book: Chicken Little by Rebecca Emberley and Ed Emberley

Song: “Mack Chicken Dance” (Greg & Steve, Big Fun)

Book: Oh, No! by Candace Fleming & Eric Rohmann

Rhyme: “Humpty Dumpty”

Song: “Hump Dee” (Various Artists, The Hip-Hop Nursery Rhymes Collection)

Book: Gravity by Jason Chin

Activity: Water Drop Art

I gave each child a small piece of paper and washable markers. After they colored the piece of paper (I encouraged them to cover as much of the paper as possible), I gave them paintbrushes and water so they could drip water onto the paper to see gravity in action.

Thoughts: I Fall Down (like other books in Vicki Cobb’s Science Play series) is great for a STEM-based storytime like this one. The book explains the science concept in a way the children can understand with mini-experiments incorporated into the book. Highly recommended!
