Valentine’s Science Experiments!


[Shared by Science Sparks]

Valentine’s day is almost upon us, so today I have a selection of HEART based investigations.



You could make a Stethoscope and listen to a friends heart beating.




Find out what happens to your pulse rate after exercise and how fast it returns to normal.

Explore respiration by making a pizza.

How about learning about melting, by making these melt and pour soaps from Red Ted Art.

Red Ted Art also has a fantastic post about making candle wicks.



The Imagination Tree has some lovely Spin Art Cards. I’ll come back and explain the science behind these very soon.
