Science4U The Labs with Kits 

Busy Bees – Grades K-1

Buzz on into this lab to explore bee anatomy and life cycles. Students will examine the features of bees and what they need to survive as well as the shape and function of honeycombs.


Outrageous Orbiters – Grades K-1

Build a model of the sun, earth, and moon to see how they orbit one another as day turns to night and the moon moves across the night sky.


Plant Detective – Grades K-3

Students will learn what seeds need to germinate and grow into healthy plants. By sorting seeds by description and matching seeds to the plant, students become plant detectives and investigate how they can help plants be survivors!


Owl Pellet Dissection – Grades 2-8

What comes up is as interesting as what was swallowed! In this dissection lab, students discover what’s for dinner when dining with owls.


Rock Detective – Grade 3

To help solve a mystery, budding geologists will use several tests and a dichotomous key to examine, identify, and categorize rocks. Observation, classification, investigation, inference, and communication are reinforced during this lab.


Whose Scat is That? – Grades 4-6

Producers, consumers, omnivores, carnivores…all of these explored through what might seem an unlikely source…SCAT! Students examine animal “scat” to identify what was eaten and by whom. Food chains or webs will be created, and disruptions to those webs will be discussed.


Frog Dissection – Grades 4-8

Frogs have body systems similar to our own, leading to discussions about classification, adaptation, and reproduction.


Earthworm Dissection – Grades 4-8

These slippery segmented worms crawl through our yards and gardens, but students really get up close and internal in this dissection lab. Discussions about adaptations and classification accompany this investigation.


Balloon Blow Up – Grade 5

Mass and volume have never been more fascinating as students estimate, measure, hypothesize, and mix to determine how to make the biggest balloon.


Kidney Chaos – Grade 7

Starting with a visual experiment of filtration, students create a model kidney and see what is filtered out and want materials remain in the kidney. Discussions of cell membranes, organelles, and body systems will stem from this lab activity.


Bananas for DNA! – Grade 8 and HS Biology

Students will extract and compare quantities of DNA from two fruits as they explore the structure of DNA, its location within the cell, and genetic modification of foods.
