Science Experiments for Kids

Each of these science fair experiments follows the scientific method.

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.

Question

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?

5. Analyze/Conclusion

In this step, you will put all your research together and make a conclusion. What happened? Was your hypothesis correct?

Science Experiments for Kids

Remember, science isn’t only for school. Fun science experiments can also be done at home with the family. Too cold to play outside? Do a science experiment. Is it a rainy summer day? Do a science experiment. Science experiments are a great way to get your child’s creative juices flowing.

Doing science experiments as a family is a great way to bond and create memories. Remember, they are only little for a little while.

We hope you enjoy these fun science experiments for kids!
