What kid doesn’t enjoy playing in water? I remember being so fascinated that water was so versatile that it could be 3 things; gas, liquid and solid. To me, that made water almost magical. Water science is one of the most basic parts of science and it’s a great place to start for many unit studies. You can adapt water science to just about any age, too, because so much of our world and our bodies have to do with water. To make gathering ideas easy, here is a list of Easy Water Science Experiments for Kids to get you started.
