Looking for a fun and easy science fair experiment for your kindergarten or elementary school student? Looking for a fun way to entertain your little one at home?
At Kids Play and Create, we got you covered! We have fun and exciting science fair projects below.
Each of these science fair experiments follows the scientific method.
You may hear your child say they must follow the scientific method when completing your science fair project. As parents, we sometimes forget school terms. If you forgot what the scientific method is, no problem! We will explain it here.
The first step is asking yourself a question. What is it that you want to find out?
2. Formulate a hypothesis
The hypothesis is an educated guess. What do you think is going to happen?
Some scientific methods suggest you do research first and then formulate a hypothesis. Others say to develop a hypothesis first. Neither is right nor wrong. We are going to go with formulating a hypothesis first.
When doing an experiment for school, the teacher will usually send home the order they prefer.
3. Complete the experiment
In this step, you will complete the experiment. This is where all the fun happens. We call this the doing step.
4. Collect the data/research
What were the results of the experiments? What did you find out?
In this step, you will put all your research together and make a conclusion. What happened? Was your hypothesis correct?
