June is such a beautiful time of year. We’re all in the full swing for summer, which means lots of time to explore the world around us.
We want to spend more and more time outdoors. So we find interesting ways to incorporate fun in the sun into our curriculum.
When incorporating fun outdoor activities into our curriculum, students are learning without realizing they’re learning!
And I’m always looking for ways to create science experiments with a seasonal or holiday theme.
To connect this budding time of year with science, we’ve created these four June Science Experiments so your students can conduct science experiments and make hypotheses while asking and answering scientific questions.
Want science experiments for every month of the year? Be sure to take a look at all of our Monthly Science Experiments Bundle.
June Science Experiments
To engage our little learners with science, we use Science Experiments to spark their thirst for knowledge.
Your class will be captivated by these exciting hands-on science experiments! This resource is perfect for helping your students realize how much fun science can be and is ideal for Pre-K, Kindergarten, and first grade.
Inside You’ll Find:
- Four different science experiments – some are seasonal and some can be used at any time of the year.
- Each experiment comes with step-by-step instructions, pictures showing how to complete the experiment, and an explanation behind the science so you can explain it to your students.
- 2 recording sheets for each experiment so you can differentiate for your students.
It is hot outside! Let’s learn about bubbles and have some fun!
Students are amazed as they see how the giant bubbles float through the air. They will make hypotheses, then they’ll observe the changes as they watch where the bubbles land.
While we explore Bubbles, we like to read Bubble Trouble because our kiddos always have tons of giggles and don’t even realize how much they are learning about science. Another great book while working on this experiment is Pop! A Book About Bubbles by Kimberly Bradley.
Ice Cream in a Bag
Kids enjoy working with their hands and being able to create things. With this super fun activity, students will be able to actually make their own ice cream in a bag! They’ll learn how things freeze quickly (in a very tasty way!)
Your little learners will be able to make hypotheses and observations about salt and ice, as they make their own special serving of ice cream. This is a wonderful way to get kids thinking about matter and volume.
As we make our own ice cream, we dig in deeper and think about sharing it when we read Should I Share My Ice Cream by Mo Willems.
This exciting leakproof bag experiment is a fascinating way to introduce our students to liquids and solids.
It’s a great way to discuss liquids, solids, mass, and volume as they try to figure out why the bag isn’t losing water when poked by the skewers.
As we keep discovering the many different aspects science, we continue learning more about liquids and solids by reading Change It!: Solids, Liquids, Gases and You by Adrienne Mason.
Make Your Own Rockets
This one is always a student favorite and another way to introduce them to emergy.
You’ll be able to discuss with your kids energy, force, fossil fuels, and engineering
Your little scientists will be able to observe and record the results as they see how far their rocket flies. They’ll also be able to compare and contrast how differently designed rockets travel different distances and why
While we are discovering what propels rockets we will read Spaceships and Rockets: Relive Missions to Space by DK.
