Science Experiments for Kids. Activities so many kids’ science experiments you can do at home. From learning about how clouds rain to making sun-dried raisins, this list of 20 favorite science activities promises to be fun for kids AND grown ups.
create your own ecosystem- just set them in front of a sunny window so that photosynthesis can happen, setting in motion the cycle of life. The water will evaporate to the top to rain down on the soil, helping the grass to grow and the dead leaves to decompose, which feed the insects. There will be plenty of oxygen from the plants, and the algae that will grow will feed the fish and snails.
Clouds in Jar- preschool. water with shaving cream on top (clouds) then pour colored water in a droper on top the clouds and watch as it goes thru the cloud and into the water.Good site on preschool stuff
Weather experiment - take a clear plastic cup and add plain water. Put a small amount of shaving creme on top. Then a few drops of red and yellow food coloring. The food coloring slowly finds it's way down into the water to make ORANGE rain! What fun!
Dancing raisins activities. Lots of fun experiments. I have done this experiment, and seen the entire class become silent out of curiosity. It is a great engagement piece for a lesson, and it can be hands on if you ask for volunteers!
