I would appreciate any help I could get with this. Keep in mind that this is a simple layout, some things may be finished in the list but most are not.

Essentially I am asking of fun activities you have done pertaining to science around this grade level I'm targeting.*

Below (in [ code ] tag) is what I have so far and if you have any ideas it would be so helpful.

Code (Text):

[Cell Structure and Function]
Need:

Students Needed:

Guide: 1)

Self (No sources)
[Examining Ants]
Need: Magnifying glass

Students Needed: One

Guide: 1) Grab a magnifying glass
2) Walk outside (with a teacher) so we can begin exploring
3) Use magnifying and hover above an ant hill and explore their actions. IE: Carrying supplies, guarding, eating, etc...
4) Describe what you seen

Ant Farm (No sources)
[Creating an ant farm]
Need: Ant Farm, and ants

Students Needed: One and a parent/teacher

Guide: 1)

Explorabook (Magnetism)
[Creating Magnetism]
Need: Paper Clips (Four should be enough), Magnet

Students Needed: One

Guide: 1) Stick a paper clip to a magnet
2) Hold a paper clip up to the magnet
4) Drop on ground to create vibration and lose magnetic force

None (No Source)
Need: (2) Two Liter bottles, water, and duct tape.

Students Needed: One, Adult supervision suggested

Guide: 1) Take a two liter bottle, fill it up with water about 3/4's of the way
2) Line up both two liter bottles, tip to tip.
3) Begin duct tapping the bottle together

Explorations in Science
[Table Magnetism]
Need: Magnet, Paperclips (Four should be enough)

Students Needed: One

Guide: 1) Use a Magnet
2) Have some paperclips on the table
3) Use the magnet underneath the table to pull the paperclips across
4) Write a small response of what you observed

Explorations in Science

3) Sprinkle sand over glue
4) Let glue dry
5) Shake off extra sand

Explorations in Science
[Sound Travels]
Need: Pencil w/ Eraser

Students Needed: One, its better with more

Guide: 1) Find and a use a pencil with eraser attached
2) Find objects around classroom to investigate how well sound travels through solids

Explorations in Science
[Sound Effects]
Need: Pitcher of Water, Strainer, Baking Pan

Students Needed: Two or Three, its a fun group activity but can be done by oneself.

Guide: 1) Fill a pitcher halfway with water
2) Lay down baking pan on ground
3) Hold strainer about a foot above baking pan
4) Slowly pour water into strainer that is above baking pan
5) Clean up any mess that is caused

Explorations in Science
[Explore animals and their surroundings]
Need: Magnifying glass

Students Needed: Two students is ideal and a parent/teacher if you plan on exploring outside.

Guide: 1) Go outside (with adult)
2) Look for animal homes and animals
3) Remember not to touch/frighten any of the animals
4) Observe and record your data

Explorations in Science
Need: See individual instruments

Students Needed: One, great group activity
