The "Why do we need sunscreen?" Experiment- might be fun for 5th graders to use for Scientific Method

The "Why do we need sunscreen?" Experiment - I Can Teach My Child!

If your kids are like mine, they can't stand it when you put sunscreen on them. I was so excited to find this activity from Sid the Science Kid to

This website allows students do go on a journey through space via the internet. It says that it is a fifth grade assignment, however I think that it could be used in any grade level. YOu would just need to think of other questions for the students to answer.

5th Grade Space Webquest: Postcards From the Planets

In this 5th grade space Webquest, students will identify the major characteristics of each planet, and then use that information to create a series of postcards as they journey through the universe. Who needs a rocket when you can travel through space via the Internet?

Miller's Science Space: Sedimentary Rocks

Just a quick update...with anchor charts!

We are done with Physical Science and have moved on to Eaarth Science! There are so many fun labs to do here, and the kids love them! I have new anchor charts to add to my collection, too. Formation of sedimentary rocks and Types of soil, which we will fill out tomorrow. It doesn't look like much, yet, but this is just the shell I made before class so we can fill it out together. Have a great night!

Why Is The Sky Blue? Simple Science (Video)

Simple science experiment and explanations for the classic question on natural phenomenon -- Why is the sky blue for kids.

bottle ecosystems, I remember doing these in 5th grade...I wanna do these in my class!

Summer Fun: Ecosystem Edition

This is not my idea, but I know a good one when I see it, and I had to tuck this away to do this summer with the kids. Some kids at one of our schools did something similar for a science project, and then my friend Michelle, over at Scribbit, detailed the project when she did it with her children up in Alaska. That being said, so that I take no credit whatsoever, this is a really, really cool thing to do with your kids, young and old. Even my sixteen year old daughter was completely engaged…

San Andreas fault, Earth's biggest transform plate boundary.

Aerial photograph of the San Andreas fault as it crosses the Carrizo Plain some 450km (300 miles) south of San Francisco and 160km (100 miles) north of Los Angeles. The fault, which extends almost the full length of California and is responsible for major earthquakes, is the narrow, valley-like scar running from bottom right to top centre of the picture.

Teach It: Resources and Ideas for Ecosystems and Food Chains

7 Ideas to Teach Ecosystems and Food Webs

Here are 7 of my favorite science teaching ideas for ecosystems, food chains, and food webs! 1. Ecosystems StudyJams I adore these StudyJams video clips from Scholastic. Check out the ones on Ecos…

Going to try this sounds like fun!  You don't have to wait millions of years to turn coal into a beautiful gem. Watch coal turn into crystals right before your eyes! While you're at it, take time to explain how diamonds are formed: he'll be surprised to learn that natural material, such as peat, is compressed over years and years into carbon-rich coal, and then into crystals!

In this activity, your kid will watch coal turn into crystals right before her very eyes, and learn some science along the way!

Exploding ghosts for a little Halloween science. Great science experiment for kids.

As a Matter of Fact {New Unit!!!} Interesting. I did this with my 5th graders but for a writing activity, this would be cute for lil kids Science--and tasty.

As a Matter of Fact {New Unit!!!}

I am thrilled to have *finally* completed my matter unit. No, no...not because I had to completely remake the unit...twice {long story}, but because this unit is probably my best unit yet...if I do say so myself. ;) I love all of the fun that we had during this study, and I {along with my kiddos} am completely obsessed with matter! These experiments are something that they will remember for quite some time! All I have to say to that is PTL...because PASS is just around the corner! Oh dear…
