Most of us are aware of the fact that science is what we encounter in practically every area of our daily lives. The word science is not restricted to just classrooms and laboratories and children are the ones who are curious about scientific findings happening around them which expands or widens their mental horizons by questioning the latest findings by asking the what, why and how aspects of scientific experiment outcomes.
If you want your children to develop a solid understanding on scientific concepts, the best way to do them would be to motivate them to get engaged in simple scientific projects for schools goers that could be tried at home using some materials in your household. Here are some projects provided below of class VI students from various domains of science like Physics, Chemistry and Biology.
How to Grow Crystals of Salt
Students could grow salt crystals by themselves with this simple and interesting project. They could also do further biological researches on microbes and so on using a microscope after the completion of the project.
Make a Model Hand
Most of us are aware of the fact that muscles play a large role in the functioning of our body and to portray this, we would develop a hand model showing its inner workings like how muscles
and tendons coordinate.
It has been a probing question for students of Physics worldwide as to how the vertical and horizontal projectile motion works. The question remains as to which bullet would land first a bullet fired from a gun to the top or the one fired directly to the ground. Let us discuss about horizontal motion over here.
Make a Wind Vane
Students would be curious to know as to which direction the wind is blowing and what sort of an instrument would be apt to find the wind direction as most people are not bothered by them.
