These four September Science Experiments are a great way to introduce science to your students. Using these hands-on learning activities and experiments, your students with fall in love with science time.
With the start of cool weather in September, it’s fun to include some hands-on learning with your students!
These simple, but meaningful science experiments are a great way to incorporate learning in a way they won’t soon forget.
To connect science to other disciplines, pair these September Science Experiments with a cheerful Sunflower Name and Fingerprint Craft, or read one of my favorite fall books for little kids as a group activity and for quiet time!
With September being the start of fall, it’s the perfect excuse for me to bring out some of these fall crafts for my students and some fall-themed learning like this Sunflower Addition and Subtraction Printable!
Want to bring even more fall science into your classroom to extend these lessons? Your students will love our Five Senses week-long Unit.
September Science Experiments
Science experiments are one of my favorite ways to engage students without them realizing they’re learning.
Inside You’ll Find:
- Four different science experiments – some are seasonal and some are perfect for the whole year.
- Step-by-step instructions and pictures showing how to complete the experiments.
- Recording sheet for your students as they complete the experiments to record their observations.
- An explanation behind the science so you can explain it to your students using science vocabulary but in a way they’ll (and you’ll) understand
Bread Mold and Germs
This Bread Mold and Germs experiment is the perfect way to teach your kids about personal hygiene and cleanliness. A must for the start of any school year.
Students will make a hypothesis and record what they expect will happen and will then record their observations of what actually happens as they complete the experiment.
This will help show the difference between bacteria growth on wet surfaces versus dry ones and on organic bread versus regular bread. And most importantly, this experiment will definitely make the concept of why we wash our hands more concrete and relatable.
Watch your students try to test the fall rate of different objects while they learn about mass.
Use different items from around the classroom or items brought in from home to experiment with falling objects.
Students will record their observations on a differentiated sheet to draw or write the results of their experiment.
Five Senses Popcorn
Students will be so excited to learn about their five senses with this hands-on (and mouths-on!) experiment.
Students will use all of their senses to walk through the steps of making and then eating popcorn… and they’ll be more than happy to do it!
Your little learners will be able to record what they observed about the popcorn with each sense on the record sheet.
This Magic Milk experiment is a blast to do with kids! It’s so much fun because students love the swirling colors.
This experiment takes very few supplies and comes together quickly, so there’s little to no set-up to do this with your students.
Students will learn about molecules and surface tension with this colorful milk experiment. It’s great for large groups and works well for an at-home experiment too.
