One of the most diverse tools when trying to find a great 6th grade science project topic is definitely the internet. Whatever your student’s interests, you are sure to be able to find a fun and educational science project that will satisfy their school science project requirements. You just need to know where to look.
Start with a more general search for a project in your child’s area of interest. For example, “6th grade science projects, marine biology” or “6th grade science projects, earth sciences.” This might yield some useful results, but you may be at risk of becoming overwhelmed with too many results, or too many projects that don’t suit your child’s curriculum or interests.
If you’d like to browse several subject areas at once, you can try searching for websites that contain large inventories of science project ideas. Very often these databases, like the ones found at http://www.akronlibrary.org/DBS/SFDB/Default.aspx or http://www.youth.net/nsrc/sci/sci.index.html, are capable of being searched by grade level or subject, and have reliable science projects that are age appropriate for your student. This might be a better strategy than finding a project idea on an independently run website that might not be trustworthy.
