To plan your Science Day Camp, first, decide the theme. Pick a theme based on the categories below or come up with your own. You may focus on one branch within science (Chemistry or Life Science, for example), or combine several branches in one unit study.
Try out each activity before deciding to use it for the Science Day Camp. Determine if kids will need help with the project and line up adult helpers as needed. Consider how many students will there be as well as age range and abilities and plan activities accordingly. Pair older and younger kids, if necessary.
These experiments are ideal for a Science Day Camp because only a few items are needed for each project. There are also many printable worksheets you can use! Please remember to credit Home Science Tools if you reproduce any ideas or content from our website.
Plan exactly how many hours your Science Day Camp will last. For elementary students, no more than 3-4 hours will work best. You can start in the morning, take a break for snack, and end around lunchtime. Be sure to plan around the weather.
