Do you want to integrate hands-on science into your primary classroom, but struggle to find quick, easy, yet content rich experiments? This product may be just what you need!
While teaching kindergarten, I found that our curriculum was lacking the hands-on experimentation portion that I think is so critical to engaging our students. But I struggled to find experiments that didn't require long prep times, lots of cutting or lots of supplies. I scoured the internet and chose experiments that are JUST RIGHT for the primary classroom.
This produce includes experiments that provide additional learning and exploration on the following topics:
⚛ Bats (Echolocation & Scents)
⚛ Five Senses (Taste & Scent)
⚛ Pumpkins (Life Cycles & Pumpkin Observations) *Perfect for Halloween/Pumpkin Day!
⚛ Magnets (Liquid Magnets & Magnetic Item Sort)
⚛ Water Cycle (Make your own cloud & Cycle Craftivity)
⚛ Butterflies (Butterfly Eyes, Pollination & Life Cycle)
⚛ Oceans (Tides & Salt/Fresh Water)
⚛ Landforms (Volcanos & Conduction)
⚛ Plants (Parts, Seed Needs, Seed Dissection, & Roots)
⚛ Health (Healthy Food & Healthy Teeth)
⚛ Astronomy (Planet Distance, Moon Phases)
⚛ Animals (Adaptations-2 experiments)
Each topic includes the following:
✎ Class Newsletter - explains the topic, provides vocabulary and suggested reading
✎ Home Activity - One activity designed for at home: these activities may be best done one on one or require supplies that are not ideal for large classroom use. *I sometimes do this experiment myself and have the students observe instead of participate*
✎ Class Activity - designed specifically with the teacher and student in mind! Hands-on, relevant and easy to implement! Most supplies can be picked up from the dollar store for under $10!
✎ Assessment - Show what you know! Assessment designed specifically for your primary students!
