Real World "Everyday" Science




In our everyday life, science is happening to us and around us (ALL THE TIME).  

This interactive bulletin board idea uses contributions from the students as part of the display. Students bring in photographs, magazine articles, newspaper clippings and other examples of science in everyday life. The items are displayed on the bulletin board to show students why science is important in the real world.

For extra credit, I want you to take pictures of things you see in your community, home, church, etc., that is science in action.  You can email me your photos to and I will print them out for you.  Who knows, we might even create a webpage with them.  Then, I want you to write a short paragraph describing the science you saw happening.  We will use the purple bulletin board in our room as our designated board. This is a year long, interactive project.

Hope you enjoy it and have fun!
