Yesterday we talked math, today we’re talking science. Obviously, not all of science can be learned from a textbook. Part of the wonder of learning about the scientific world is getting to see demonstrations right in front of you. So, today we’ve got a list of the best science projects the internet has to offer, check them out!
- Blast Off!: Tackle physics and engineering with an easy to build mini rocket. Your budding rocket scientists will love this demonstration of the forces of motion. It may even inspire them to build their own bigger and more complex rocket!
- Ocean Zones: Learning about the ocean? Use this ocean zones jar as a reference as you explore the different zones of the ocean, their characteristics, and the different kinds of animals that live in each one. It’s a helpful visual model as your child learns to identify the different zones.
- Make Your Own Cloud: Is your child learning about the environment? Tackle one of the basics with this tutorial on making your own miniature cloud. The activity explores how clouds are formed, how they rain, and how they hold and store water. Be sure to expand on this and relate it to other environmental topics you are teaching.
- What’s In a Drop of Blood?: Teaching your child about the human body? Take on some anatomy with this fun and easy project to create a enlarged visual of all of the components of blood. This makes it a lot easier for your child to visualize all of the microscopic elements.
