Magnets - what do they stick to?

 

Trying to mix oil and water.

 

Standing white flowers in water with food colouring.

 

What do plants need? Try growing seedlings without light/water/soil

 

How does the angle of a ramp change the speed at which a toy car goes down it?

 

Making shakers with different fillings and predicting what they would sound like.

 

Plucking elastic bands on a shoebox, making them tighter and looser.

 

Balloon rockets - Put a straw on some string stretched across the room, fix a balloon to the straw, blow it up and then let go and watch it shoot along the string - great fun.

 

I'll keep thinking.

We planned to make volcanoes this week but when it came to it we didn't have enough bicarb. So we did an experiment to see which was the best thing to use - three children each made volcanoes but using different ingredients: cream of tartar, baking power and bicarb.

 

Turned it into a proper experiment and the 'winner' was thrilled when hers provided the most spectacular eruption! :o
