Science Fair Projects List of Science Fair Ideas Okay, here is the hardest part of the whole project...picking your topic. But here are some ideas to get you started. Even if you don't like any, they may inspire you to come up with one of your own. Does music affect on animal behavior? Didn't see one you like? Everyday Science for PreK & K . Science Activities . Education There are numerous everyday opportunities for exploring science with your child. For example, your child is learning about the basic properties of light when he notices the size and shape of his shadow change as the sun appears to move across the sky. Seeing his reflection in a mirror, window, or pool of water tells him more about how light behaves. Similarly, you can use common everyday objects such as balloons and paper airplanes to help your child explore the properties of air. And any of these experiences can happen indoors or out, day and night. Make the most of your daily experiences with these everyday ideas for science with preschoolers and children in kindergarten. Investigate your shadow: Once children have some familiarity with shadows they can be challenged to experiment with them a bit. Where else can you see yourself? Exploring balloon power: Partially inflate a balloon and ask your child what she thinks will happen when you let go of the end. Back to Science Activities
