science week ideas

Recommended Posts

we have a science week coming up in a couple of weeks. nursery (me!) and reception are working together for the day. has anyone got any ideas for some adult focused activities we could do? we want the children to choose from what's on offer, with all children doing one adult activity in each classroom. and any ideas for activities they can choose from when not with adult would be gratefully received!! ;) :1b

Errrrrr how about for child initiated

ice tray with various things contained in the ice cubes, coloured ice cubes.

Magnets and magnetic/non magnetic items, pipe cleaners in a pop bottle is good.

Balloon races on string, bigger balloon further it will race.

Cornflour.

Cars with ramps of various sizes

Sorry if that's not much help, good luck x

Make a volcano as the adult focus ours loved this last year. We had a plastic cup, built up a volcano from playdough around it, put in some white vinegar and then added bicarbonate of soda. (instructions on internet google or youtube)

 

Could do discovery bottles plenty of information about those on line, I particularly like putting raisins into lemonade bottles and watching them go up and down the bottle and see if the children can work out why,or oil and coloured water and how it separates.

Ditto Panders - we then let the children go with the flow with the junk modelling and the dinosaurs and encouraged them to have a go at modelling a volcanic dinosaur landscape which they enjoyed.
