Kids’ Activities for World Science Day

kids-science

November 10th is World Science Day! If you’re searching for a way to celebrate this special day with your kiddos, check out these exciting and educational explorations.

DIY Volcano

Kids can make their own volcanoes in the kitchen. Cover the work surface with newspaper, cardboard or a thick table cloth. Place a slim cup at the center of the work space. Give your child modeling clay and help them to build a mountain-like volcano structure. Next, ask them how they think they can make the volcano erupt. Fill the bottom of the cup with two to three tablespoons of baking soda. Only use baking soda. Baking powder won’t work. Slowly add vinegar to the cup and watch what happens. The mixture will bubble and overflow, creating an erupting volcano.

Sink or Float

This activity is ideal for younger children. Fill a plastic bin or tub with water. Choose two objects that can go into the water. Make sure one item is heavier than the other. Ask your child which one they think weighs more. Drop both items into the water to see if the objects sink or float. If both sink, discuss why one fell faster than the other.

Ice Melt Activity

This solid to liquid transformation experiment is an easy science activity for preschoolers and young elementary schoolers. Place three ice cubes on three separate plates. Put each plate in a different place. Choose a sunny location, dark place and a medium-heat space. Time the ice to see which one melts the fastest. Discuss what happened to the cubes and why.
