Take your little scientists into Peep's Big Wide World
One of my favorite resources for engaging our little scientific explorers in Hamilton STEM is "Peep and the Big Wide World".
It's a cartoon series that follows the many explorations and interactions of buddies Peep, Chirp, and Quack. Each episode features one natural phenomena that the trio try to make sense of with the same mindsets our young students have.
The production comes from PBS and has a fun website that includes videos and games organized by different scientific concepts. In addition to what's available on the site, also check YouTube for a ton of additional episodes.
