We love spring! With the weather getting warmer and everything blooming we decided to create these April Science Experiments.
Everything is green and beautiful so we like to connect this season throughout our curriculum.
We expand on our literacy skills with our Spring CVC Puzzles and Flowers Number Match-Up.
We find out more about this blossoming time of year by reading our collection of Spring Books and explore the Life Cycle of Flowering plants with this craftivity.
To connect spring with science, I’ve created four April Science Experiments so your students can conduct science experiments, make hypotheses, and ask and answer scientific questions.
Want more ways to bring spring and science together? Be sure to take a look at some of our Plants a Science Unit.
April Science Experiments
Science experiments are always a fun way to get kids involved in hands-on learning.
Your students will enjoy these engaging science experiments! This seasonal resource is perfect for helping your little learner realize how much fun science can be and is perfect for Pre-K, Kindergarten, and first grade.
Inside You’ll Find:
- Four different science experiments – some seasonal and some evergreen.
- Each experiment has step-by-step instructions and pictures showing how to complete the experiment.
- 2 recording sheets for each experiment so you can differentiate for your students, perfect for pre-writers and writers.
Craft Stick Color Mixing:
This color mixing craft is a great way for kids to explore primary colors and blend art within a science project.
Your students will watch the primary colors mix together and create secondary colors almost like magic and will have a gorgeous piece of art at the end.
Students will make hypotheses, then they’ll observe the changes as colors are mixed.
Flip the Arrow
Your students will explore light refraction and how light bends through water with this quick and easy prep experiment.
It’s so simple, your students can easily replicate this experiment at home with their families.
Your class will be able to experiment and discover as they make their hypotheses then record the results they observe.
Mini Jar Gardens
Your students will experiment with what plants need to grow and will get a worm’s view of a seed growing underground with their very own mini jar gardens!
They will be biologists and discover how much sun and how much water a plant really needs to thrive.
As their gardens begin to grow they will be able to record their observations.
Insect Observation Station
Students will create habitats that insects want to live in so students can make observations on how insects live over time. They will become entomologists and study what insects need to live.
This insect observation experiment is a wonderful compliment to our Habitats Science Unit.
