Ten Pins for Science & Social Studies

Hey friends,

Lemme start off by saying that if you missed yesterday's post; it was a doozy, about my encounter with a wasp and the hospitalization that followed. You'll wanna check it out if you've got wasps in your area so you know the signs to look for...as in get me to the hospital NOW signs :-(

Now for the good stuff! I am linking up with Ashley at Just Reed again for her Ten Pin Linky Party. This week's theme is Science & Social Studies. Some of these science and social studies pins will be more appropriate for upper elementary or middle school than my future firsties. 

Here we go...

1. This website is full of experiments to do with kids - It's even got a "preschool science" section! science-sparks.com

2. Cloud Dough - (the stuff at hands on museums) 8 cups flour & 1 cup baby oil. It feels like flour as you run your fingers through it, but it's moldable. A wonderful sensory activity for children. I'm positive this stuff has lots of uses...moon craters, 3-D shapes, etc... jugglingwithkids.com

3. Nine apps for young scientists! playfullearning.net
4. Edible DNA :-) Edible science is the best kind! When I taught fifth grade science, kids went crazy for out Roots, Leaves, and Stems Feast, sugar cube sink holes, chocolate cake mudslides, and boiled egg earth layers. teach.genetics.utah.edu
5. Hello! No social studies class is complete without at least one salt dough map :-) Great for teaching elevation and physical features. kidworldcitizen.org
6. Flip flap books and foldables were great for 5th and 6th grade. This one is from a second grade classroom.  simplyskilledinsecond.blogspot.com
7. Food chain stacking cups from eisforexplore.blogspot.com.
8. More edible science. I don't know the source of this one. 
9. Too cute! Spring Time Science with Seeds from rainbowswithinreach.blogspot.com.

10. Weather: Fill the cup with water. Put shaving cream on top for a cloud. Explain that when clouds get really heavy with water, it rains! Then put blue food coloring on top of the cloud, and watch it rain. Kids love experiments! I don't know the source of this pin either. 

Thanks for stopping by, and come back soon :-)
