I have been approached by a preschool to be their science teacher for 3yr olds, 4 yr olds & 5 yr olds.  I have never taught this age before & have never taught just science before. 

Do you all know of any websites &/or books that are great science resources for this age group?  Any input is really appreciated! 

Thanks in advance!

here is a neat website, they are selling a curriculum but it has some books listed that look good and some other things

http://www.noeoscience.com/bio1.html

here are some fun experiments to try, we loved the hand washing one

we have also used for dental health stuff flossing the bottom side of an egg carton (kinda like teeth)

we did the tornado in a bottle and my girls loved doing that and read some books on tornadoes. scholastic has some really good science books that are sold in sets as well. hope this helps!

  I have Science; Time To Learn http://www.paperbackswap.com/book/details/9781570291968-Science+Time+to+Learn on my shelf, it has a lot of great science projects to do with young kids ... I have several from the series posted but this is the only one about science.   The projects are fun and easy and my kids enjoyed them a lot.
