This would be a fun project for any age. As they get older, you could get more detailed in discussion etc. of why they grow/shrink depending on the water they are put in. - For teachers...a good lesson... gummy bears, fair projects, middle school, science lessons, water fun, science labs, science fair, kid, science fun
For my future high school biology students struggling with diffusion. Plus, gummy bears are sure to get their attention.

Great Growing Gummie Bears! A fun science experiment on Osmosis! Step by step instructions, teacher tips, material list, and student lab book included! Everything you need to conduct this sweet experiment!
Science for Kids: Gummy Bear Science
Gummy bears and bread to demonstrate fossils. Layers of bread represent layers of Earth. Add pressure by placing books on top. Leave for 3 days. Make predictions before and after experiment. This would be a good science lesson to do before our trip to the Natural History museum to understand what fossils are. the bread, gummy bears, kid science experiments, science lessons, science activities, fossil, gummi bear, museum, earth science

Make your own bouncy balls from scratch. Just borax and corn starch! This is a ridiculously cool science experiment.
Fun for hours! A block of ice with treasure frozen inside and a hammer. Great for those 100+ degree summers! kids inside activities, frozen activities for kids, fun inside activities for kids, frozen insid, inside fun for kids, keep kids busy in summer, block of ice, kid summer activities, kids summer activities
Toys in Ice
Cut up pipe-cleaners and place them in a bottle. Use a magnet to manipulate them. kids will stay busy for hours.
Another Pinner said: "This kept my 2 year busy for an entire hour and my 4 year old busy for 2 hours! YAY! Drop vinegar tinted with food coloring onto a pan filled with baking soda. Sheer minutes of colorful fizziness!!... Pretty sure we will be doing this soon!
Fluffy Stuff (2 boxes cornstarch and 1 can shaving cream; color if desired) -- moldable
MAD SCIENTIST WEEK - I love this site bc it explains the science behind each project
Preschool Science Experiments: "Sparkly Explosion!" This website has lots of fun ideas to do with your preschoolers :)
From one of my once most fabulous student teachers who now does a better job than I do. Weather: Fill the cup with water. Put shaving cream on top for a cloud. Explain that when clouds get really heavy with water, it rains! Then put blue food coloring on top of the cloud, and watch it rain.
Discovery bottles- Only use Gatorade or G2 bottles for the sensory bottles they are a heavier plastic so they hold up better and keep a unison look so everything looks good.Make sure to ALWAYS seal your bottles securely with hot glue around the top of the lid. discoveri bottl, plastic bottles, preschool science ideas, scienc discoveri, science bottles, rice discovery bottles, preschool toothpicks, sensori bottl, sensory bottles preschool
Science Bottles- just made me excited. I see my summer filling up with projects.
Three Little Pigs activity - literature connection. Build "houses" out of different materials and see if "The Big Bad Wolf" hair dryer can blow them down. Early engineering education!
That is pretty neat!!! For our plant unit... What happens when you put Indian corn in a pan of water? I think this is a good learning experience for the children and gives them something to look forward to when they come to class everyday. garden classroom, indian corn, science activities, plants in the classroom, plants children, preschool plants, water projects for kids, gardening preschool, educational activities
Watch as the blue and yellow water travel up the paper towel and makes it's way into the empty cup making green water.
Teaching density. Shake it up and watch it separate again. Could also use as a nice interest piece when talking about liquids in the matter unit.
Sounds like a fun experiment for introducing the Scientific Process....Soda sink or float. Have kids predict whether sodas will sink or float. Most will assume they will all act the same but they won't! Diet pop floats and regular sinks. Nice way to touch on sugar content too :) sodas, classroom science experiments, diets, sugar content, sink or float, teacher, science fair, diet coke, kid
