Gather your mini scientists together and get ready for a five minute science extravaganza! If you teach in a classroom or at home or if you are simply looking for some easy and quick science experiments to do with an after school club, a scouting or church group, or with your own kids or grandkids, you need to add our new science packet, 5 Experiments in 5 Minutes, to your library.
Quick Science Experiments
This new packet contains 5 colorful and simple experiments for kids ages 3-10. All of the activities are suitable for school or for home, for large groups or for one-on-one instruction alike.
My kids love these experiments and I love that they are learning while having fun! – Jeslin
Each experiment is easy to set up and takes 5 minutes or less to complete. This makes 5 Experiments in 5 Minutes perfect for a wide range of ages and abilities!
These 5 minute science experiments are surprisingly simple to set up and use supplies you probably already have in your pantry. Who knew that using baking soda, vinegar, food coloring, dish soap, and vegetable oil could be so outrageously fun and educational?!
Each activity contains a list of supplies, thorough directions, a simple explanation of the science behind what you see, and several suggestions for how to take the experiment broader and deeper.
At the end of each science activity you will find three “Variations to Try.” These are intended to build on the scientific concepts taught in each activity and to get the kids thinking more deeply about what they see. It’s like getting 15 bonus science experiments!
The easy instructions and worksheets are really helpful. – Bie
Each activity also comes with a no-prep worksheet to increase attention and understanding. All five worksheets can be bundled together to create a science journal kids can keep!
The 5 fast science experiments included in this packet are:
- Magic Milk
- Exploding Baggie
- Color Bombs
- Fishing for Ice
- Dancing Raisins
Best of all the experiments are safe and very fast so you can do them on almost any occasion! – Holden
