This year my daughter and I got to work on our first science project together. Kindergarten science projects sure have evolved since I was a 5 year old. We learned what happens when you mix different drops of food coloring together.
This is a relatively easy project that also teaches your child about primary and secondary colors. Plus, what kid doesn’t love to play with food coloring?
Our first kindergarten science project was simple enough but the documentation nearly killed me. There was no way, at 5, she was going to be able to write all of that! I couldn’t even imagine that they were expected to hand-write the materials and the procedures. Still, I think we did a great job and had a little fun at the same time!
Shortly thereafter, my son and I worked on our first science project together (He’s also in kindergarten). You can see that kindergarten science experiment here.
How’d we do? What do you think? What types of science projects are your elementary school kids doing this year?
