Science Experiments - The Low-down 4th Grade
Get the low-down by having your class examine the process of conducting a science experiment. They will discuss what makes a good science experiment, then examine pull-back cars and inclined planes to determine what kind of experiment they can conduct.
3rd - 5th Science
Evidence of Photosynthesis
Hands on science is the way to go! Learners conduct a lab experiment to help them explain how plants make food through photosynthesis. They test for the presence of starch in leaves using iodine solution and identify the basic things plants need to produce food.
Dinnertime for Animals
Is a deer an herbivore? What about a spider? Experiment with the food chain in an interactive science experiment. After listing the herbivores from a selection of animals, third and fourth graders compare the skulls and teeth of herbivores and carnivores (you'll need to provide the pictures).
3rd - 4th Science
Attract or Repel?
Opposites attract with a fun science experiment on magnets. With a short paragraph on background knowledge, the lab sheet prompts third and fourth graders to choose which pairs of magnets will attract, and which pairs will repel. A science investigation section allows kids to perform this experiment with actual magnets.
3rd - 4th Science
Are You Aware?
Bring the five senses to life with a fun science experiment! Kindergartners and first graders read an explanation of the five senses, then identify which items Sophia can sense if she is blindfolded. A science explanation at the bottom prompts kids to try the activity on their own.
