These activities link to the topics of electricity, sound, forces, and changes of state and require simple equipment you may already have at home. Once you have tried the activities yourself, challenge yourself to record your findings using a scientific diagram in your yellow exercise book and to explain what you observed. We would love to see photos of the experiments in action and how you have recorded them!

 

Here is one possible activity to get you started. The rest can be downloaded below.
