This .pdf download includes 20 Science activities for your students. They appeal to multiple grades, but I would recommend them for your Grade 1 - 2 students.
These activties are meaningful - but simple! They will not require many materials or clean-up. They will encourage students to work in pairs or small groups.
Each activity is designed to encourage and develop practice in the following areas:
- Following instructions
- Conducting a simple experiment
- Making and recording observations
- Making connections to real-life situations
- Comparing and contrasting
Includes activities for the following areas in Science:
- Living Things
- Five Senses
The package includes 6 experiments and 12 separate activity pages. The experiments will require some preparation of materials (e.g. providing buckets or tubs of water and an assortment of classroom objects). The activity pages are suitable for independent work, requring the students to make observations, draw, and write.
