6th Grade Science Projects
Moons of Jupiter
: One of my favorite 6th grade science projects involves the Moons of Jupiter. 6th grade science usually focuses on geology and astronomy, and this project integrates the two fields.
Forensic Science for Kids -- Sand Mystery
: This is a great science project for all ages. If you don't want to do it as a murder mystery, then modify it so that the culprit, "borrowed" a teddy bear, and took it to the beach. Modified this way, I have used it successfully with 3rd graders.
Solar System Research Project
: This project integrates astronomy, geology and biology. It is a great middle school research project, and I have used it successfully with 5th graders and 8th graders. I believe 6th graders would love it too.
