Science Projects for Sixth Graders

Finding the right science project topic for students at the 6th grade level might be somewhat difficult. It has to be something they can understand and do mostly for themselves, but also be able to hold their interest, and teach them something.  By using  the resources you have readily at your disposal, including your child’s science teacher, the library, and the internet, you can help find the perfect 6th grade science project  for your student

First, consult with your child’s science teacher when trying to find a good science project idea, especially at the 6th grade level. This way, you’ll be sure to know what the class is currently studying to keep the project relevant but not redundant, and clarify any requirements or deadlines.

Next, science project books, easily found at the public library, are reliable and easy to use resources for finding and executing a science project. Using the library is a great way to teach your child to search for books by subject matter, in this case looking for science projects or the subject matter that interests them, and to ask for help from the librarian if you need it. 

 Finally, the internet is a great place to find huge amounts of 6th grade science project ideas, but you have to know where to look to save yourself time. While you can begin with a general search for science project ideas, it might be a good idea to search more specifically for websites like http://www.akronlibrary.org/DBS/SFDB/Default.aspx that are searchable by subject matter or grade level, so that you aren’t finding projects that are too easy or difficult for your student. Another great tool is the free project guides found at http://www.middle-school-science-projects.com/guide.pdf.
