There’s some science that just seems to be great during summer, any science involving water, and science involving stars. I always think of stargazing during summer.
Life Science for kids
The Learning Table has a great edible DNA model (and I love the first picture, her son just looks so excited about the project). Of course the bottom mad scientist picture is also pretty priceless.
And to keep cool you can try the blubber experiment from Gift of Curiosity, this experiment is always a hit with young kids because they never believe how much it insulates.
Botany Science for kids
Clark and Luci Learn has a great botany unit based off “The Tale of Peter Rabbit,” and she did a great job with pulling in multiple subject areas.
Astronomy science for kids
We plan to study Astronomy next year, and I love astronomy during summer for all those clear summer skies, so these astronomy ideas from All Things Beautiful are wonderful to see.
Chemistry and Physics science for kids
Life with Moore Babies explored light and how to make a rainbow, these would be really fun to do in July (I know my kids would love to make a rainbow with a hose)
Over at The Tiger Chronicle, they’re learning all about chemistry and they’ve got a great tie in to making rainbows by changing colors with chemistry.
Continuing the color theme, hop on over to Gift of Curiosity and try out these color grading ice cream cones. She did them as part of a sense of sight unit study, but I think it could be really interesting also with a color or rainbow study.
Vaguely unrelated to color, other than they used food dye, but I loved this variation on elephant’s toothpaste with yeast.
General Science for kids
Over at Angellic Scalliwags, she’s been doing a great series on kitchen science and germs, and this month she looked at the claim “Your toilet is cleaner than your kitchen sponge” and got some interesting results. Then look at her amazing hands on microbes her kids create.

Now link up your SCIENCE posts, new and old, and then visit some of the other posts linked up and say hi. I’m going to be pinning, commenting, FBing or tweeting all of the posts linked up as the week goes by. At the end of the month I’m going to feature the best posts linked up.
Make sure to include a link back to my blog so people can come back from your post to see what others have done. By linking you are agreeing I can feature your posts in a round up post later (I may use a picture to feature, but will link back).
