Experiments are a great part of science that allow children of all ages to engage in fun and exciting hands on learning experiences that they will enjoy. Little scientist Diego shows in his videos how to use real science tools for simple experiments which are very effective to learn basic scientific concepts. In his videos he experiments with different things and observes what happens, which substances react with each other and which don’t. It’s fun to see his little faces when some of the results are surprising or not as expected.
For his experiments Little Scientist used the Primary Science Lab Set by Learning Resources which engages young scientists between 4 and 8 with this hands-on exploration set featuring real tools sized perfectly for little hands.
In this video Diego shows how to use science tools such as beakers, magnifying glass, funnel, pipette, flask, tweezers, goggles, large and small test tubes with lids and stands and 10 Activity Cards. He also tries the shiny pennies experiment with an extraordinary result.
The cards are simple to use and instructions easy to read. Some of the fun science experiments kids can try include:
Can you make oil and water mix?
Harness static electricity with balloons.
Make your own fake snot.
Can you make raisins dance?
Students can follow the step-by-step, fully illustrated activity cards or experiment with their own ideas. They’ll be having so much fun they won’t even realise they’re learning!
