EXPLANATION: The kids have heard familiar terms in the solar system like sun, moon, earth. At their age, they obviously do not know anything about the solar system. But the concept can be introduced to them in a fun way that they begin to make some imaginations in their heads.

Topics like this are needed to expand their knowledge of science. Science is not just for high school. The preschoolers are also competent to understand scientific concepts and develop scientific thinking from early age. Early science experiences are vital to the young child’s educational growth and development.
