Home Experiments

Post by kimmy »

Now most of us are down to only a few students turning up at actual school and google classrooms now is what seems to be happening.
We had our video link up science meeting this morning and i mentioned we need to actually get the kids off the computer for a bit. All lessons are basically now computer based and this will be so hard for some of the students.
What experiments can we come up with that the students can do without risking any accidents, and stuff that all households would have.
So obviously the experiments wont have toilet paper in them. :cheesy:

Have a look on the Fizzics Education website. He has a few things that can be done at home.

most of our kids would not have this stuff at home and we are trying to work on some simple experiments that kids will have the stuff at home for.
I personally struggle to get red cabbage at times.

thank you though
