Christmas Science Labs and STEM from The Science Penguin Do you need some FUN science activities to do before Winter Break? These 5 Christmas activities are engaging, educational, and the most fun your students will have this year!
For the last couple of years I have done an elaborate science demo day in my class for Halloween. This is one of those experiences that students will remember when they look back on their middle school experience.
Demonstrating processes of the earth can be a valuable way for showing students things that take place over a long time. This “Rock Sandwich” science lab helps students to visualize the process of sedimentary rocks turning into metamorphic rocks.
Teach elementary school, middle school, and high school students the importance of science lab safety rules and procedures. Students can play a game to review lab safety topics such as appropriate behavior and attire, correct use of lab equipment, proper handling of chemicals, what to do in case of an accident or injury, and how to clean up after a lab activity.
