It rains and, as it does, the run-off makes the earth erode. Let learning about the wonders of erosion be fun and engaging with a hands-on experiment. The class will first read an informational passage describing what erosion is and the effects it has on the environment. They then make a model of erosion with dirt, rocks, and running water. The experiment is discussed and afterwards they each make a collage describing the process of erosion. 
Here is a fabulous set of teacher's notes that will make your next hands-on gravity and force lab fun and interesting. These notes provide you with three activities that allow children to make and test hypothesis regarding force, gravity, and inertia. All you need is some balls and marbles and you're good to go!
Students hypothesize on what the outcome will be of an experiment, they then observe the experiment and write their observations down.  In this experimental lesson students hypothesize, observe then discuss what happens in an experiment using coke and mentos. 
Kids may be a little resistant to this rainy day idea, but it could produce some amazing art. They paint a watercolor picture of anything they like. When they are done, they take their paintings outside and let the rain work its magic! Tip: Ask kids what they think will happen to their art when it gets wet. After they make hypothesis statements, discuss if what happened was what they expected. 
Students experiment with gravity.  In this egg drop lesson, students test hypotheses and make predictions about what will protect an egg during a fall.  
Peanuts inspire this lesson about George Washington Carver, called The Peanut Wizard in the included informational text. Class members read about peanuts and George Washington Carver and create a timeline of his life. In addition, pupils plant peanuts and conduct an experiment. You might not meet every reading informational text standard that the resource lists.
Students incorporate knowledge box into their classroom activities. In this technology integration lesson, students fill out a graphic organizer using Glossopedia to analyze a new subject.
Middle schoolers participate in an experiment with a 2-liter bottle. They develop their own hypothesis about what they believe will happen when certain items are tested on the bottle. They discuss results.
Let's make coal flowers! With this fun activity, young learners watch and learn as they grow crystals! With simple household materials and the instructions included in this lesson plan, your class can grow their own crystals. Learners will make predictions, record observations, and learn about the history behind this activity. This resource includes historical background information, discussion prompts, and a worksheet for your young scientists to record their data. 
Students examine samples of common dust from their homes and school under a microscope. Students describe their samples including the location from where they were collected, and compare their samples to make hypotheses about their findings.
Fifth graders recognize the need to follow the scientific method carefully and be aware of variables in experiments.  In this airplane lesson, 5th graders design and test an airplane, and complete a data sheet. Students retest five times introducing a different variable.  Students graph results.
The benefits of inquiry-based exploration can be attained in any classroom.
Using a graduated cylinder and triple beam balance, middle schoolers measure the volume and mass of four different liquids. They use the values to compute densities. In a separate activity, they experiment with Cartesian divers and learn how pressure affects density. 
Second graders examine the physical characteristics of the different states of matter. In this chemistry lesson, 2nd graders observe how matter changes from one phase to another. They classify substances according to its type of matter.
Third graders utilize the scientific method to explain light and optics in this five lessons unit. Through experimentation and discussion, 3rd graders canvass the concepts of light traveling, reflection and refraction.
First graders identify the different steps of the scientific method. In this life science lesson plan, 1st graders apply this method when conducting a series of hands-on activities. They collect data and write observations in their journals.
Young scholars explore color, light, refraction and reflection.  In this light instructional activity students measure solar position and compare it to time.
With the right projects, summer learning can be fun and motivating.
Students apply the scientific method to the act of creating a new salad dressing. In this scientific process lesson, students use the process to create personal salad dressing from the materials provided.
Students explore the steps in the scientific method process. In this science lesson, students identify warning signs that someone is in an abusive dating relationship. They evaluate the credibility of information sources.
