What things can students do as homework science projects?
I've done a lot of science projects in my lifetime. Most of them I've found in books written about science experiments (or on the backs of cereal boxes). One such book is Simple Weather Experiments With Everyday Materials by Muriel Mandell.
Your school library probably has more books.
You can do some very simple projects. One easy one is making a growth chart of a seed you planted. Every day, draw how it has grown.
Another simple experiment is drawing the type of clouds you see in the morning. Look in a weather book, in an encyclopedia, or on the internet and try to name the clouds you saw.
Good Luck! If you come up with a good idea submit it to the Science Fair Idea Exchange.
