The Sun illuminates half of the Moon all the time. Imagine shining a flashlight on a beach ball. The half that faces the light is lit up. There’s no light on the far side, right? So for the Moon, which half is lit up depends on the rotation of the Moon. And which part of the illuminated side we can see depends on where we are when looking at the Moon. Sound complicated? This lab will straighten everything out so it makes sense.
Homeschool Science Experiment: Cold Light. What three colors do you need to make up any color in the universe? (You should be thinking: red, yellow, and blue.) Here's a trick question - can you make the color "yellow" with only red, green, and blue as your color palette? If you're a scientist, it's not a problem. But if you're an artist, you're in trouble already. youtu.be/yCDvz7wmFyM
Homeschool Science Experiment: Using only a rubber band and a single sheet of paper, you can make a rocket that flies over 75 feet! Just make sure to point it STRAIGHT UP so you don't knock any eyeballs out. youtu.be/P8-UqaQzGsA
Homeschool Science Experiment: Spectrometers are used in chemistry and astronomy to measure light. In astronomy, we can find out about distant stars without ever traveling to them, because we can split the incoming light from the stars into their colors (or energies) and “read” what they are made up of (what gases they are burning) and thus determine their what they are made of. youtu.be/l_5kMhkNceE
Homeschool Science Experiment: Using a few simple tests you can do right at home, you'll be able to tell if you've got a meteorite or not! Meteors are the smallest members of our solar system, ranging from pebble size to smaller than a grain of sand and usually weighing less than 2 grams. Kids will learn how to collect tiny meteorites very easily. They will also be able to tell a meteorite from an Earth rock. youtu.be/-bJh41Q6VTg

Homeschool Science Experiment: Hovercraft. When you slide a hockey puck on the street, it quickly comes to a stop. Take that same puck and slide it over a sheet of ice and you'll find it zooms a lot farther. What gives? This experiment is great for teaching kids about air-cushioned vehicles and air pressure. www.youtube.com/...
