The Kitchen Pantry Scientist is a great site for quick and easy science experiments. The site is created by Liz Heinecke. The Kitchen Pantry Scientist offers experiments covering biology, chemistry, food, and even physics. Along with the experiment instructions, a video or pictures are included to help explain how the experiment works. The Kitchen Pantry Scientist posted an experiment on how to make film cannister rockets. Not only are detailed instructions offered but the following video accompanies the instructions:
The Kitchen Pantry Scientist not only offers fun, simple experiment ideas, but hot topics of science in the news is also an option on this site, along with the “The World Around Us”, and a video library.
The Kitchen Pantry Scientist has been created for teaching kids about science with simple easy things we have around our households. The Kitchen Pantry Scientist would be a fabulous resource for the elementary science class. A special thanks to Larry Ferlazzofor introducing me to this site.
