Science Experiments At Home

Below are some fantastic ideas for science experiments that can be conducted at home!

 

Light

This term we are learning about light. Children have already identified a variety of light sources and understand that darkness is the absence of light.

 

Lesson 2: Sun Safety.

Go through the lesson presentation, discuss why it is necessary to protect ourselves form the sun.

Activity: Children can design their own item of protective clothing (a hat, a pair of sunglasses). Children can also design a sun safety poster detailing the ways in which we can protect ourselves form the sun and why this is necessary.
