Top Science Experiments That Every Teacher Should Do
As a teacher, I’ve always tried to find ways to teach my students new and cool things. I did a simple search online and I found SO many ideas! I first tried them at home and then I did them at school and my students were so shocked and amazed at everything. I decided to share with you guys the experiments that I did so you can either do it in school or at your own home to show your kids!
Will It Float?
My boys had so much fun coming up with objects to test if they would float or sink. Will it Float? Is a great simple science experiment to teach the basics of forming and testing a hypothesis. Your kids or students will have so much fun with this experiment. Give it a try, maybe you’ll even be surprised.
Did you know you can make Gak using just three ingredients? This simple science project is a fun example of a simple reaction. For this experiment you’ll need the following:
- 2 paper/plastic cups
- 1/2 tsp borax
- 1/2 C water
- 1 Tbsp. white glue
Baking Soda Volcano
Did you ever make a salt dough volcano in elementary school and then watch the eruptions of baking soda and vinegar? This Easy Baking Soda Volcano is a variation of that experiment that can be made in minutes using a plate, foil and a cup.
If you want a simple science project that will have your kids thinking you are the coolest mom in the world, check out this Soda Geyser. It’s easy to do with only 2 items needed. However, it’s best to do this outdoors or you’ll end up with a huge mess to clean up! It’s most likely that your kids (or students) will want to try this experiment for many times!
