At the KZN Science Centre we believe in developing young minds and have developed a programme to encourage lateral thinking in our youngest visitors.

ECD Educational Activities

  • Alphabet sort- The instructor shuffles up a set of alphabet cards, then kids try to put them back into order as quickly as possible.
  • Number twister- Kids use a mat with numbers to learn numbers by putting their hand or foot in the number the instructor tells them to put. They also learn the difference between left and right.
  • Write the alphabets- Teach the kids how to write alphabets by giving them guidelines on how to move the pen.
  • Animal Alphabets- Kids learn how to learn the alphabets by naming the animals which starts with a certain alphabet.
    (We have an animal for each alphabet). They also learn about different kinds of animals. (Science Centre card pack)
  • Number Dial- Using paper plates to teach children about numbers. Take two paper plates, divide the one paper plate in 5 equal parts then you write one to five in each section. Draw circles to represent the relevant numbers in each section. In the second plate cut out a triangle shape, then put the two plates together and use puncher for the hole in the centre, then use pipe cleaner in the centre and knot the end.
  • Create a story book-By using a ScienCentre – compiled book with words and no pictures kids draw their own pictures that go along with the words with help from their parents in reading the story.
