Halloween Science! Fun Demonstrations! Grocery Store Science Volume 6
Here are twelve fun and wacky science demonstrations which you can perform for your students using items from the grocery store such as dry ice, iodine, baking soda, vinegar, pickles, candle, bleach, and similar household items.
Re-energize your students' love of science by showing them how fun science can be.
Create a 'Wacky Science Day'. Wear a funky frock and decorate your goggles and your room. The kids don't have to take notes, write a lab report, or do homework. You are the entertainer!
Perform as many of the demonstrations as you can fit into your class period. I guarantee they will remember this day.
Lead up to each new demonstration with a 'wild, wacky story' or 'hook', wow them with your amazing magic, then explain the science behind it. All of the directions, preparation instructions, materials list, clean-up, and stories are provided.
The objective/purpose for each demo is given, along with an explanation of the science behind it so they are learning and reinforcing science concepts such as energy transformation, density, physical changes, chemical changes, and observational skills.
Twelve demonstrations, materials needed, directions and information, some with pictures, and suggestions for running it smoothly are given.
