Lots of great ideas for science to mostly to Pre-K, Kindergarten, and first graders, but also some ideas for older kids, too! Visit me at www.heidisongs.com, or at my blog at http://heidisongs.blogspot.com.

Have you ever done science experiments with candy? This is a fun "classic" one. You put skittles or M&Ms in a small dish with water. Then you wait and watch the colors spread! This is best done in a clear bowl or plate so that you can watch the colors easily. Another fun thing that happens is that after a bit, the little white Ms float up to the top of the water!⁠ Science Ideas, Science Experiments, Wait And Watch, Little White, Some Ideas, Ms, About Me Blog, Plate, Candy

When I taught second grade, I discovered that my kiddos did not really understand the difference between the words "dissolve," "melt," and "thaw." So we tried it out, and then labeled it. Then, I passed out an ice cube to everyone, and they let it melt in their hands! I think that they understood it much better after that! Science should always be as hands-on and visual as possible, I think! Teaching Second Grade, Sing Along Songs, I Passed, Science Ideas, Cube, Singing, About Me Blog, Hands, Let It Be

And I've seen our youngest son put soap on one hand and then instead of rubbing them together, stick the soapy hand immediately under the running water. Hopefully this simple, yet fun, experiment has convinced them of the merits of soap. The experiment is meant to simulate how soap helps to get rid of germs.
