Kids Fun Science

Welcome to our website Kids Fun Science. For many years I was a teacher and taught science to kids of various ages. I found that kids loved science when the lessons includes activities and experiments. 

Our website includes pages of basic science information plus many science activities and experiments that kids will like to do while learning new and fascinating facts about science.

Field trip to a volcano

The kids in the picture are my four grandchildren on a field trip to visit a cinder cone that is not far from our home. They are at the summit of the cinder cone where they can walk around and look down into the crater of the volcano.

Our family lives on the Cascadia Subduction zone in volcano country. Our children and grandchildren grew up visiting fascinating places near our home. Many of the pictures on this website were taken during our family vacations on trips when my husband and I collected rocks for my students when I was teaching school.

Activities and Main topics

All of our science activities have been “kid tested” by my grandchildren as they were growing up. My Dinos and Fossils activity book was written because our grandkids were fascinated with dinosaurs when they were younger.

The Main Topics on this website include pages of facts about Planet Earth, Volcanoes, Earthquakes, The Oceans, and much more. Click on the links below for more information.
