Investigating Science!

Science is so much fun!  Today I thought I would share some ideas and pictures about all the fun we have in science!

One of my favorite science units this year has been our study of magnets!  Students learned so much and were totally engaged with each activity! That is the beauty of science, it keeps everyone actively engaged! 

At the end of our magnet study my kiddos completed this fun book all about magnets!   They loved completing the 5 magnetic experiments on their own!  The magnet book is availabe in my TPT store.

A few years ago I ran a home based summer camp for my own children, neighborhood kids and friends.  We called it Spy Camp (hence the title of my blog)!  Spy Camp became a summer tradition and for years we spent our summers investigating Science, Art, Nature and Fun! 

The liquids unit was always a favorite of mine and the kids!  Check out this great Liquids Science Journal in my TPT store!  It is filled with engaging activities for your students.

For even more fun science ideas head on over to Cynthia at 2nd Grade Pad!  She is having a fun giveway and Mad Science Linky Party!  Be sure to check it out!

As always, thanks for stopping by!

  3. I have always been intimidated by science, but I'm a sucker for cute graphics, so your adorable science journal makes me almost brave enough to delve in. Thanks for the cute inspiration!

  9. Looks like the students had a great time! I introduced my Kinders to magnets in September and they really enjoyed it! Hands-on investigations are the BEST!
