What things can students do as homework science projects?
In my lifetime, I've done a lot of different science projects. 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 many similar books.
You can do simple experiments that don't require many supplies at all like charting the growth of two plants which have been given different food, or have been exposed to different types of music (let me know if you find a plant that doesn't like the University of Michigan's fight song!). Remember, if you're going to have variables in an experiment, you need to control as much else as you can! Another simple experiment is drawing the type of clouds you see in a the morning, and charting the weather that happened that day. Is there a connection?
You can include all sorts of different interests in your science projects. Once, I built a car that ran and braked using only rubber bands. Another time I made a flute using a piece of bamboo. Part of my project was being able to play songs on the flute by the end of it (simple songs at least!)
If you come up with a good idea submit it to the Science Fair Idea Exchange. Good Luck!
