Do you want to make your Science lessons come to life? Then this is the packet for you. This unit includes 7 hands-on experiments that you could use in your classroom.

First graders are expected to make "good" predictions. In the beginning of the year, this is a skill that is difficult for them. However, through practice and hands-on activities such as these, students can make predictions, write out predictions, and also write about the outcomes of experiments. These are all skills that our first graders are expected to be able to do by the end of the year.

This packet is different from most that you buy on TpT. Instead of giving you centers and activities to print, cut out, and laminate, this packet is full of hands-on activities that you can use with your students. I completed all of these in my first grade class and my students LOVED them. Not to mention, the parents were so excited that we did “so much Science!”

The packet is broken down by picture steps (to help you see what the experiment should look like,) and then I give you a “cheat sheet.” This black and white copy is for you to print out and have on hand when you are completing the experiment in your class.

I also include “grocery lists” for all of the activities. {How much do I hate when I get home and realize I forgot ONE item!!}

It also includes graphing activities, recording sheets, anchor chart ideas, and more!

Experiments Include:

Mini Explosions
Discovery Bottles
Walking Water
Fireworks In a Cup
Coke and Mentos
The Milk Experiment

This unit is aligned to the Science TEKS. It is not aligned to the Common Core because at this point there are not any Science standards for first grade.

I truly hope that you enjoy this pack and that you have FUN with these experiments, crafts, and activities!
