Preschool Universe themes are collections of educational preschool activities from all over the web. The activities are classified into one of six categories – Math & Science, Language & Literature, Reading & Writing, Arts & Crafts, Music & Movement, and Sensory. This way, you can be sure your preschoolers are getting practice in each of these important areas, and really exploring a theme from all angles.
