Science Snacks are a free collection of over 250 small science activities, designed to be slotted into your classes or used to experiment at home. They are written by former science teachers and scientists so that you know that they’ll work and the science is correct. They use easily obtained and inexpensive supplies, help promote equitable teaching by having students investigate phenomena directly, and are NGSS aligned.

Here’s a couple of samples:

Condiment diver

Tape Electroscope
