Exploring Your Fingerprints: Preschool Science Activity

Our fingerprints are unique to us, nobody has the same fingerprints we do!

Even identical twins can have fingerprints that are barely different, making a fingerprint something special about us. This is a fun scientific fact and your Preschoolers can explore it by studying their own fingerprints in this exciting activity! It was very popular at Harmony Preschool and is sure to be a hit at your school too!

We learned that we are all special and unique!

3. Next have the students look through their magnifying glasses at their fingerprints.
