I am teaching 5th grade. We are implementing more science experiments this year. Does anyone have any successful science experiments?

Here are some online sites. Some have virtual experiments you can show. You also can look at Brainpop.com but it is not free. It has good explanations for Science and a lot more.

I use a combination of resources. My school has FOSS kits and the state specific material from AIMS. Many of the materials for the AIMS activities are things you may already have in your room or at home. Their address is www.aimsedu.org.

I also use www.4teachers.org, as well as the ones the previous poster listed.

I did these this past week:

Rub a balloon with wool and hold it near another balloon to demonstrate opposite charges attract and the same repel.

Rub a comb with wool and use the comb to pick up Rice Crispies cereal to demonstrate the movement of negative charges from the wool to the comb, which then picks up the positively charged cereal. This one was really neat!

Both of these activities came from my Science book (Harcourt). Look to see if your book has such experiments. We also get science kits to use that come from our county. Everything in the kits is hands on.
