Experiments for Kids

UNDER CONSTRUCTION (Hope to have this completed by June 2020)

These hands-on experiments are meant to be done in classrooms or at home.  They all follow the same format, which includes a worksheet that guides the student to some self discovery about the concept, followed by an experiment that can be done with common household items.  Each experiment is heavy on video instructions.  The experiments try to be more than just demonstration activities.  Some stress data collection and improving measurements, while others focus on graphing results and interpreting data.  The best way to use them is with a good deal of discussion along the way.    

They are listed here in the order I recommend doing them.  Some go well together, but there are no rules.  Choose the ones that work for your situation.

Prior to doing the experiments, read this short introduction to units:
