  • Do 10-year-olds learn about photosynthesis these days? I don't remember how old I was, but I submitted a project that asked "Do Plants Grow Faster In Sunlight or Artificial Light?". I grew some lima beans in the sun, and had a few in my closet under an aquarium light for a few weeks. You could grow grass if you need it sooner. Just an idea! :-)

    Here is a website that i used when i was in school. You can also google science projects for their grade and there will be a bunch of websites that you can check.

  • i did one once testing how quickly certain liquids boil. i think i did milk and water. i did another with popcorn, i think i got like 3 different brands and tested which popped the best at like 2 minutes or something. i cant remember exactly it was like 15 years ago lol :)

  • I am sure that the school gave them a list of resources.

    This is from the Chicago Public Schools:

  • rkoloms: thanks for the site. My son has a science fair project to do and a social studies project that is his entire 3rd quarter grade for 8th grade. My son's school doesn't give the kids resources, it is all up to them to find a project, conduct it and do the display board on it.
