March is an exciting month. We’re wrapping up winter and looking forward to spring. We also sneak in some leprechaun fun near St. Patrick’s Day. These March Science Experiments are just the way to kick off the spring holiday.
I’m always looking for ways to create science experiments with a seasonal or holiday theme.
When incorporating St. Patrick’s Day into our curriculum, students are learning without realizing they’re learning!
To connect St. Patrick’s Day with science, we’ve created these four March Science Experiments so your students can conduct science experiments, make hypotheses, and ask and answer 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.
March Science Experiments
Science Experiments are a wonderful way to engage our little learners.
Captivate your class with 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 seasonal and some evergreen.
- Each experiment has step-by-step instructions and pictures showing how to complete the experiment.
- There are 2 recording sheets for each experiment so you can differentiate for your students.
Turning Pennies Green
Our little scientists are amazed as they see the chemical reaction with their pennies throughout the day. And you’ll sneak in some basic chemistry as students make their observations.
It also provides a way for you to discuss oxidation and the role oxygen has with the materials used.
Rainbow Density Jar
Kids love rainbows, and this experiment is a great way to help your students better grasp the concept of density.
They’ll be able to make hypotheses about the density of each of the liquids and then see the liquids in action as their rainbows are created in the jars right before their eyes.
Borax Crystal Shamrocks
Borax crystal experiments are another fascinating way to introduce our students to chemistry.
It’s a great way to discuss how an acid and base react and how the crystals grow to make these fun St. Patrick’s Day Shamrocks. They’ll love being able to take their experiment home to share their newfound knowledge with their family.
Your students will be actively working with this experiment as they watch these beautiful rainbows appear. You’ll be able to discuss the protein and fat in milk and how the molecules break apart and connect with other molecules.
Your little scientists will be able to observe and record their results as the molecules react. They’ll also be able to compare and contrast their results as they make adjustments to the process.
