Easy Science Experiments

Easy science experiments are designed for kids of all ages. These free and fun science activities are ideal for home school science students. The materials used in the experiments are commonly found around the home or can easily be obtained at a local store.

Young scientists will find these three science experiments about Earth Science easy and fun to do. Loop Airplanes has students creating loop airplanes out of straws and pieces of paper that can fly 30 feet or more with a push of the finger.

Does Air Have Weight are easy science experiments that demonstrates the answer to whether air does or does not have weight.

Ocean water is easier to float in than fresh water as this Floating Eggs experiment demonstrates. The experiment Tin Foil Boats has kids building miniature boats out of tin foil and seeing how much pennies of cargo their different models will hold.

Kids will like to try these water experiments. Penny Drop has kids dropping water onto the head of a penny. Dropping Clippies is a fascinating experiment about surface tension. See how many paperclips can be added to a full glass of water without overflowing the container.

Students will enjoy doing these easy science experiments on physical science. Navigating the Oceans has kids creating their own compass using a needle and magnet. Swinging with Galileo is an experiment first conducted by Galileo showing how energy can be transferred to different objects. Amazing Experiments has students balancing a potato, fork and pencil so that only the pencil is resting on the table.

Our unit on Science Activities has many free and inexpensive ideas for students to create. Among the most interesting projects are building a model megathrust fault block to give students an understanding of what happened in the ocean during the two great Chilean earthquakes.

Our Science Projects has ideas that students can build and even turn into great science fair projects if they are looking for ideas.
