Abstract
Indeed early childhood is ready to learn many things including science. Great curiosity in children is a potential that can be exploited to introduce various concepts of science through exploration, observation and experimentation in the context of play. Children love to explore the surroundings with their senses, investigate objects, and make experiments in their daily activities, including playing. Science is a science based on findings through investigations and experiments. So it is possible to introduce science to children through project activities. Project-based science is a very interesting activity for children, because through this activity various abilities of children can be developed including the ability of children's language. Investigation activities develop the child's ability to present ideas, make inquiries, make notes, and propose arguments. Exploration activities develop the child's ability to discover new concepts, new words and new meanings. The experimental activity develops the child's ability to understand the stages of activity and the various rules. Group activities train children to communicate with peers, discuss and present their work.
