Middle School Science: Catapults & Trajectory
As a part of your middle school physical science lessons, take some time to study trajectory. We make our own simple catapults and tested how far different objects traveled when they were launched by the catapult. We also looked at the science of trajectory with water balloons by launching those too. You can see how you can recreate our experiments with your tweens and the what our results were. As you can see, they had a blast jumping on the catapult to launch everything.
Testing Acids & Bases in Middle School Science
One of our recent middle school science lessons was on acids and bases. To help my kids grasp the difference between the two, and how to use the pH scale, we made our own cabbage indicator. Then tested various household substances to see where they fell on the pH scale. To assist your teens in keeping track of their findings, use my helpful printable to keep them focused. This was one of our favorite homeschool chemistry experiments. The color changes were cool.
Chemical Reaction Experiments You Can Do At Home
During chemistry, take time to complete hands-on activities so tweens can observe different types of chemical reactions. Add some of these cool experiments to your homeschool - they may be simple, but adding thought provoking questions makes them perfect for middle school. You may think of something growing or exploding when you hear the term chemical reaction, but not all reactions are that noticeable. My tweens loved blowing up a balloon with baking soda and vinegar.

Building a Volcano at Home with Tweens
Kids love chemical reactions and there's no project better than the volcano. Here are a bunch of ideas for studying volcanoes in your homeschool. Use them in your science, geography, and ancient history lessons. Your tweens will have a blast studying these earth formations with these fun projects. If you're worried about the mess - building a volcano isn't as messy as you think.
Acids & Bases Experiments for Middle School
While learning about acids and bases during a middle school chemistry lesson, we made our own cabbage indicator. Then, we tested various household substances to see if they were acids or bases and where they fell on the pH scale. To assist your teens in keeping track of their findings, use my helpful printable to keep them focused. This was one of our favorite homeschool chemistry experiments.
