Step-by-step building of a catapult from craft sticks; this unit presents the elements of a science project (research, hypothesis, etc.) that can be used for this catapult experiment and applied for other science projects in the future.
A set of four physics experiments in our Where We Find Science series that demonstrate the properties of the surface tension of water. Includes a Scientific Method report form and an explanation and results page.
An advanced astronomy project in which student builds a device to measure the position of the sun in the sky and record its changes, to help understanding of seasons. Includes scientific method report form. Part of abcteach's Where We Find Science Series.
This great introduction to the importance of indicators is a science experiment, with different levels of questions presented for each grade level from kindergarten to middle school. Clear, thorough, and fun explanation of acids and bases.
Reading comprehensions on the sun, incandescent light, light bulbs, electroluminescence, fluorescence, phosphorescence, bioluminescence, LEDs and LCDs... every type of light. A thoroughly informative unit!
A one page explanation of where we find science and an introduction to the abcteach series that looks at where we find science through sets of experiments. Includes vocabulary list and comprehension questions.
A set of seven experiments that demonstrate that the sciences of biology, chemistry and physics are part of our life at home. Set 1 of a series of experiments titled Science at Home, includes a description of experiments, scientific method report form and an explanation of probable results.
Two fact-filled and easy-to-understand reading comprehensions, explaining and defining light. Our light units are available at four different levels, with increasingly advanced vocabulary and concepts.
Rules and task description for building a tower from simple household materials. This is a great science/math combo lesson: students explore properties of balance and strength and try to balance a budget!
