Science experiments are engaging, meaningful, and a great tool for teaching language to students of all ages. (Need some convincing? Check out my reasons why here.) They are nearly perfect, however, they can take a lot of preparation. From powerpoints to worksheets to materials for the main event, a lot of time can go in just a single experiment.
This Powerpoint introduces the scientific process, and lays the foundation for all future experiments. *When in 'view slideshow' mode, some of the slides animate, so make sure to check it out ahead of time.
If you like to also do worksheets, here's a simple one to go along with the powerpoint.
To raise new questions, new possibilities, to regard old problems from a new angle, requires creative imagination and marks real advance in science. ~ Albert Einstein
