Incredible Edible Science provides everything you need to teach important science and literacy skills to children in exciting ways. Each of the more than 160 science-based activities encourage children's investigative nature while incorporating concepts in mathematics, language, and literacy. Each experience uses simple, inexpensive materials and includes suggested vocabulary words and questions to ask children to encourage their interactions and learning.

These food-based activities are developmentally appropriate and provide a hands-on tool for providing strong child-centered learning outcomes, achieving curriculum goals, and inspiring children's curiosity and learning. Incredible Edible Science also includes:

  • An overview of brain development and educational theory in early childhood
  • Tips on getting organized, including cooking safety and health guidelines
  • Emphasis on each of the six basic science process skills: observing, classifying, communicating, measuring, inferring, and predicting

As an added bonus, children can often eat their work after the activity is complete!
