Looking for hands-on projects to keep your kids busy while they can’t be going to co-op and practice? From now through June, you can get FREE Hands-On Science Lessons from Mystery Science.
Parents, please note: Mystery Science includes some great science resources but also includes lessons presented from an evolutionary worldview. Please use discretion when choosing lessons for your students.
How It Works
Once you’ve signed in, you can choose between Lessons and Mini-Lessons.
- Lessons include a video, an activity, and various extension ideas. There are also transcripts of each video so kids can read along with the video.
- Mini-Lessons – these are short videos that answer questions from kids such as “Who invented pizza?” “Can animals laugh?” “Why do we get hiccups?” and many more fun questions.
Taking a Closer Look
To find the lessons, first choose from the list of topics on the left side of the screen. You’ll see options for studying plants, animals, weather, forces, water, properties and phases of matter, anatomy, chemistry, and much more.
Once you choose a topic, you’ll see the available lessons that form the unit. The number of lessons vary by topic. For example, if you choose Human Machine, you’ll see four lessons:
- Muscles & Skeleton
- Light, Eyes & Vision
- Structure & Function of Eyes
- Brain, Nerves & Information Processing
Activities for these lessons include:
- building a robot finger
- building a model of the human eye
- adding a smaller pupil to the eye model to learn about the pupil’s job
- testing reflexes
Each activity also includes a helpful Activity Prep list that lets you know what materials are needed to complete the hands-on activity.
To get started, go to Mystery Science and sign up for a a FREE teacher account, which will give you access to the full lessons.
