or experiments website.

My favorite is ScienceBob.com

https://sciencebob.com/category/experiments/

Most are easy because they use household items which are easily found and cost little. Each experiment has a lab sheet so students can read and follow directions. They are all pretty fun and many have a WOW factor.

I learned about science buddies from PT and always recommend it to friends IRL and students looking for experiments to do during science fair.

Thanks for providing the link! I can't seem to make it work from my laptop, dunno why. I think it was a PTer that told me the first time but it's super helpful.

can really help make science fun. Science was not really my thing when I first started teaching. I had teachers who made we feel like if I meed up the lab I was going to fail. So instead of enjoying the experimentation process I dreaded it. After I analyzed those feelings I starting trying to make the hands on science in my elementary class fun so kids get hooked on science and want to know more. Sciencebob.com really helped make me a better science teacher.

Steve Spangler site

Steve Spangler's site has several experiments- such as elephant toothpaste, bending water, and create a compass.

Not experiments, but I LOVE scholastic's STUDY JAMS videos, activities, quizzes for Math and Science.

I agree! Study Jams is an excellent site for science (and math) even though it does not share experiments.
