Science Interactive Notebook
Here is the science section! Just press on the google docs for the interactive notebooks, then press the arrow in the box. It will take you to a document, and you can print out and interact with.
On the bottom there are 15 science experiment ideas with a written explanation and a video tutorial from YouTube on how to perform these experiments.
Habitats and Life Cycles
Insects and Animals
Gardening is quite simple, however, it does require adult supervision. All you have to do is plant the seeds in mud and make sure your seed gets sunlight and water.
Grow all different kind of plants like flowers and vegetables.
Invisible Ink Experiment
Add lemon juice to a bowl. The use a paintbrush or cotton swab to write a message to whoever you want.
Blow Up Balloon Using Science
Scoop the baking soda and put it into the balloon using a funnel.
Put vinegar into the flask carefully.
Next attach the balloon to the top of the flask, but make sure not to let baking soda pour into flask.
Create Bubbly Lemon
Cut the lemon into two equal halves. Slice off a bit from the rounded part of lemon so it can stand upright.
Use the tail end of spoon to mush the inner part of lemon. The juice should not spill.
Add whatever food coloring you want to the lemon.
Lastly, add a spoonful of baking soda to the lemon, and it will start fizzing immediately.
Walking Rainbow Water activity
Set your glasses about 2 inches apart and fill it with the same amount of water ( any kind of temperature water works).
Then place the food coloring you want into each cup.
Take a piece of paper towel and fold it until it is 1 to 2 inches wide.
Then distribute the paper towel across the glasses like in the video.
Mix 1/2 a cup of water and glue in a bowl. Add the food coloring of your choice into this mix.
Then add 1/2 a teaspoon of baking soda.
Lastly, keep adding contact lens solution and stirring until it turns into slime.
Oil In Water
Oil is less dense than water so it floats in water.
Add food coloring to your oil and whisk it so it is mixed. Then pour your oil into a cup of water that is 3/4 full. Observe what happens.
Use Science cups to hold your body weight
Regular paper cups and place them in a row like in the picture.
Then put a piece of cardboard on top of the cups and see if it can hold your weight.
Shaving Cream Clouds
Fill a clear cup with water.
Add a layer of shaving cream.
Add several drops of food coloring.
Keep adding drops of food coloring until the drops start falling through the cloud like rain.
Sink or Float Games
Find out what will sink ( go down) or float (stay on surface) in water.
You can use objects around your house like rocks, cotton balls, eggs, and more.
Paint with Ice
Fill the ice tray with water.
Add food coloring to ever part of your ice tray. It can be different colors.
Attach popsicle sticks in each part of the ice tray.
Then freeze it.
Once it is frozen, take out the ice with the popsicle stick. Now gets a sheet of paper and rub your ice against it.
Build a Bridge with popsicle sticks
Get popsicle sticks and glue them together to make the building you want.
Candy Heart science experiment
Pour one clear glass of milk and add candy hearts into that mixture.
Pour one glass of soda in a clear glass and add the candy hearts.
Pour one glass of vinegar and baking soda and add the candy hearts to this mixture.
Pour one glass of corn syrup into a clear glass and add candy hearts.
Observe what happens to the candy hearts in all the mixtures.
Sensory Bottle Experiment
Get a clear water bottle and fill your bottle halfway with water.
Add the other half of oil and gently shake it a bunch of times. Make sure the lid is closed.
Open your bottle and add food coloring, glitter, or any other objects you would like to put in there.
This is the most popular way of doing sensory bottles, but you can also experiment other ways by watching the video above.
Making Play dough
Add one cup of flour to a bowl.
Add 1/2 cup of salt to that same bowl.
Then add a 1/2 cup of water in that bowl.
Then mix everything. If the mixture is too dry add more water. If it is too wet, add more flour.
Knead it with your hands.
