Simple Science: Fun and Easy Science Experiements for Primary

We love to have a Simple Science Experiment every Friday.  This is an easy way to boost practice of experimentation, exploration, and observation in the classroom.  Plus, they are SUPER fun and allow for student participation! Come see some of our favorites and grab a recording sheets for your kiddos to use!
Getting Reading for Simple Science Friday

Once we're ready to introduce science lessons and experiments in the classroom, we love using this activity! We start with reading the book What is Science? It's simple and easy to read for primary kiddos. We also pull out this Learning Resources Science Kit! It's got lots of common tools a scientist uses and is great for displaying as we make the chart! These tools can be added to the chart and you can give kiddos a visual by showing them the tools. Kiddos can also hold the tools and explore with the tools.

This kit make a great addition to a Science Center for display all year! We like to set all of the tools our for kiddos to continue to explore. We also grab tools from this kit all through the year as we do our Simple Science experiments each Friday!

Here's the finished chart in our Science Center with the science tools kit. We've made the chart together and the kiddos assemble the science guy or gal.

After kiddos finish their scientist craft, we pull out some sorting bags as a little observation intro. activity. This is a great time to put some of the science tools in to action!
