Hot Air, Cold Air Science Activity
Hot Air, Cold Air Science Activity is a great experiment to watch the effects of hot air and cold air on a balloon. This activity is a great opportunity for kids to talk about what they can see and why it is happening. Kids will absolutely love this activity and will see, first hand, what effects hot and cold air has on a balloon.

Are Mittens Warm?
CLICK ON THE BOOK FOR A FREE ONLINE COPY I love to combine science and picture books! Here is an inquiry science experiment you can try with your intermediate students. First, read the book The Mitten by Jan Brett. Ask the students why all the animals wanted in the mitten. Then let your students hypothesis about whether or not mittens are warm. This really makes them think. They will need to find the room, plain mitten, and hand in mitten temperatures. When they begin to look at and analyze…
