What are some easy elementary science fair projects?


Answer by  lokindra (481)

Some of the easiest projects involve looking at regular everyday items. Like the life-cycle of a water bottle or plastic bag. Another easy project is monitoring the type and quantity of waste produced in a household and proposing ways to reduce the waste through compost or recycling.

A classic science fair project that is simple enough for elementary students is to build a volcano out of paper-mache. To make the volcano explode use some vinegar and baking soda. Remember to add orange dye to the "lava".


Answer by  jcac (6)

A baking soda and vinegar "volcano" can be made by using paper-mache around a bottle inside, and then filling it with food color (orange and red are great) and vinegar. Add baking soda and watch it "erupt."

Making volcano demonstrations is a very interesting topic and can be executed with some readily available products at home. Also, showing how a windmill works is cool idea.

Environmental Science Application, Does oil and water mix? Do seeds need soil to grow? Can you demonstrate the water cycle with household items? Can you demonstrate an aquifer with houshold items? Do bran name diapers hold more fluids that store/generic brands? Can you extract salts from plants? Can you find out if you pet favors their left or right paw?

One easy one is to see if a plant grows better in sunlight, artificial light, or darkness. Even better if you do it for two plants. Another good one is to roll a ball down various inclines, and see how far the ball rolls after it hits the bottom.
