Earlier in July, I posted a terrific article (if I do say so myself) on the science behind slime and all the cool lessons and activities you could do to teach real science concepts like viscosity and non-Newtonian fluids. Buried in that post was this printable, and I was afraid it might get lost in...

If your elementary class is discussing the scientific method, you'll love these three easy experiments. There's a drop on a penny, transfer of energy that covers potential and kinetic energy, and marble roller coasters. The last experiment comes with a freebie you'll find in my store! Find all the information you need to make your next lesson or lab an engaging, hands on activity your students will remember. Great for 3rd, 4th, or 5th grade kids. {third, fourth, fifth graders} Science Experiments, Science Experiments Kids Elementary, Science Experiments Kids, Scientific Method Activities, Easy Science Experiments, Science Method, Scientific Method Experiments, Science Lessons, Scientific Method Middle School

Children love science experiments. They want to observe and test out #allthethings, but sometimes it’s hard to get students to understand the scientific method. Understanding the steps of a true experiment is part of every

There is no single scientific method that all scientists follow! When we teach this topic and refer to it as "The Scientific Method" our students take this to mean that there is only one standard method that all (or most) scientists use. The scientific method presented in science classrooms and textbooks is a gross oversimplification of how scientists generally build knowledge.

Fun beginning of year science activity to set expectations on how students will complete lab sheets (details, drawings, descriptions) as well has lab behavior. Fun, Easy, and Quick Prep Lab that is easy to make connections to the scientific method. fourth grade science, fifth grade science, sixth grade science 6th Grade Science, Fourth Grade Science, Reading, 5th Grade Science, Science Activities, 4th Grade Science, Homeschool Science, Beginning Of Year, Science Lessons

The Scientific Method! Again! I'm in such a science-y mood! By the time kiddos get to me in 6th grade they can repeat it and know all about it. #thestruggleisreal to make it awesome and exciting by the time they are in 6th grade. And doing something they will remember and LOVE is such a challenge. Scientific Method Fun is found with a few centers and one lab that we do. The LAB is called "Cat's in the BAG". MEOW! I use it to setup my expectations for how I want students to complete labs (the…
