It’s time to turn your home into a laboratory. Learn about static energy and re-create homemade lightning. See a rocket ship launch with the science of chemical reactions. Here are 17 experiments to get those brain gears churning — click through to see them all. We’ve even ranked the messiness factor from one to five sponges so you know what to...

Homeschooling science project: make it rain in a jar... great for teaching weather or water cycle. Hmmm... wonder what happens if you use salt water or put in a "pollutant"?

Science Experiment: "Sparkly Explosion!" Baking soda and vinegar with a glitter twist

Science Experiment: "Sparkly Explosion!"

Preschool Science - thunderstorm in a cup -Fill the cup half full of water (sky) Add shaving cream (clouds) few drops food coloring (water droplets).  Explain as the cloud gets full and heavy the water starts to fall from the sky as rain. concept of lightning by explaining the frozen water in the cloud bumps into each other and causes an electrical charge.  Bent paperclips represent lightning.
