Science Projects

I teach a 1st grade class on Sunday mornings at my church. This particular class is almost all boys, so as you might imagine, there is no lack of energy and enthusiasm in my class! While the curriculum we use is a good one, it could use a bit more "engagement" to keep the attention of six and seven year old boys focused on the lessons, so I add a science project each week to our class activities.

I have to tell you, the kids in my class love the science projects! Did I say, "love"? I should have said, "LOVE"! Not only do they LOVE the science projects, but they listen, pay attention and most importantly, they remember the point of the projects - I always connect the science project to the Bible lesson each week.

Since the kids in my class LOVE the science projects so much, I thought it would be fun on Monday mornings to share the projects with you and a general "application" so you could use them in your classes, too! I find most of the actual science projects on and then I connect the activity with the Bible lesson.

  1. Love this! I'm no good at the experimental side of science, but know how important it is for kids. So, I'm collecting all the practical projects I can find. These are great.
    BTW, saw your post on Kidz Matter and had to find out more. It's not possible to overestimate the importance of reaching the hearts of the next generation!
