Science Home Learning

Here are some simple science activities for you to enjoy at home. Remember, always ask an adult before doing any science at home. Be mindful of the resources that you use. Remember to share your science at home using the blog below, or ask an adult to tweet school using @MiddlewichPS.

  • Observe which objects float or sink
  • Build a bug hotel
  • Draw round a puddle with chalk and observe what happens over time
  • Build a Lego tower and investigate the shadows it can create
  • Cut the ends of a straw into a point, then blow. What different pitches can you create?
  • Set up a row of bottles with varying amounts of liquid and then blow across the openings to hear the different tones.
  • Test your reaction time by having a friend drop a ruler between two almost closed fingers. See how fast you can grab it. Can you beat your sibling?
  • Fold a paper aeroplane and then bend a corner to see how that changes its flight path.
  • Make a sundial by placing a stick in a vertical position and a circle of rocks around it marking each hour.
  • Dish soap, pepper, a toothpick, and a little bit of water are all you need to feel like a science wizard! Watch a little drop of soap chase pepper away in the Pepper & Soap Experiment.
