Make learning exciting for children with over 160 hands-on, food-based science activities, each with a strong literacy connection. Incredible Edible Science provides everything needed to teach important science process skills in a safe, developmentally appropriate way. These cross-curricular activities promote brain development and fully engage children though physical involvement-such as exploring balance and texture as they create popcorn ball structures, classifying and patterning different types of cereal, and investigating fractions with biscuits-and participation in literacy and language components such as phonemic awareness, vocabulary development, and following directions. After the activity is complete, children can eat their work!
