I am a student teacher in a 1st grade classroom, what are some hands on science activities for first grade?

Hi Samantha!

First graders are naturals at hands-on exploring, and there are many activities that can take advantage of their curiosity and interests.

One place to start is by looking through NSTA's Science and Children journal. Each issue includes ideas for young students. I'd look at the Early Years and Teaching with Trade Books articles.

What specific topic(s) do you have in mind? That would be helpful to those of in the Forum who have lots of classroom-tested ideas, and we are ready, willing, and able to share!
