Second grade science experiments and science fair project ideas

Skittles Science Project (Candy)

What do you do when there is an oversupply of candies in the house, like the day after Halloween? (yeah, right.) Candy science experiment, of course! This experiment is really spectacular to watch, but the science behind is pretty complicated… actually, I haven’t found a definitive scientific explanation agreed by all authoritative scientists yet. But …

Easy Science Experiment: Gravity And Magnetism Activity

Normally, paper clips do not fly into a hand that hovers over them. That is because the gravitational force pulls the paper clips toward the Earth. In the experiment, you will use a strong magnet to make the paper clips come upward into your hands. It’s almost like the paper clips can defy gravity. But …

Volume Exploration And The Scientific Method

Here is a hands-on STEM exercise for kids. It is fun for the kids and very easy to set up. Use everyday items around the house to illustrate science ideas and theories. Explore volume, shape and size The size of a three-dimensional space is called volume. One simple way to find out which container has a bigger …

How To Make A Compass For Kids

Compasses are a very important tool explorers. They are useful when you go hiking, camping or other outdoor activities. They help you identify directions so you won’t get lost. Compasses work because there is a giant magnetic field surrounding us on Earth. Did you know that it’s very easy to make your own compass at …

Magnetic Poles For Kids | Science Experiment

Playing with magnets is always fun. We bought some very strong magnets recently and they are perfect to show what magnetic field looks like. Magnet attracts iron and the magnetism can act through many materials such as paper.  When iron filings are spread over the magnets, you can see the outline of the magnetic force or …

Fun Math Games – Learning Shapes And Patterns Activities

Patterning is fundamental to mathematics because all math are virtually patterns and structures. Mathematical relations and transformations result in patterns and abstraction. It is therefore critical to children’s development of mathematical reasoning. The integration of patterning in children’s early learning can promote such development. There are many types of patterning: written symbols (e.g. ABCABCABC…), numerical (e.g. 1, …
