Your baby’s brain starts developing from birth. From then on it is incredibly important for your child to explore everything through their different senses. As they grow older, they learn more and will come to a point where they’ll be able to start learning by doing experiments on their own (under adult supervision at first of course). We’ve compiled a list of 7 different science experiments, starting at pre-school and ending with high school, from Rookie Parenting Science, that you can do with your kids, and that they can do by themselves one day.

Pre-School – Shape Visualization
Grade 2 – Finding Iron In Soil – Easy Iron Extraction Experiment
Grade 3 – Light And Shadow – Shadow Drawing Activity
Drawing with light and shadow is such an easy and yet fun activity for little kids. It helps them understand the starter points of physics. It is extremely educational when observing different ways a shadow is cast at a different time of day.
Grade 5 – Does Water Conduct Electricity?
We are all taught from a very young age to never touch an electrical appliance with wet hands and to never use anything electrical near water. You can do really cool controlled experiments to show your child why.
Grade 7 – Colour Changing Flowers Science Project
Grade 10 – Make A Square Bubble
Grade 12 – Growing Crystals For Kids – Crystal Rainbow
