Science Friday Educate has a wide variety of hands-on science experiments, investigations, and activities for K-12 classrooma nd informal settings that are compeltely free to everyone. Some of my recent favorites are:

And we're always looking for new ideas, so reach out!

I would also be interested if you find science activities that incorporate math (ratios/rates).

Science Friday just published this hands-on activity about soil that uses ratios. It could probably be adapted for distance learning if you give the students sample data.

Hi all,

I´d like to share one of my favourite lists of methodes and activities. When I have student teaching, I try to use one of these, because not only are they fun to preparate them, but I have also had good experiences with the students in class. The website is from an university from germany, but I think it is easy to translate and bring it in your own lessons. Best regards, Lennart
