Science Projects on the Internet for Eighth Graders

An amazing resource when trying to find the perfect science project for your 8th grader is the internet. It’s important to find a project that is challenging, educational, but also grade level appropriate.  Your student will want a project that is interesting  and internet searches allow for the type of specificity that will help you find a science project that balances all of these crucial elements. 

When you have decided what type of project your child would like to attempt, you can search for projects along with more specific search criteria like their grade level, or the subject matter. For example, “8th grade science project ideas, butterflies.” This should hopefully yield plenty of results. It’s important to narrow your results with criteria like your child’s grade level, age, or a subject matter so that you can be sure you are getting results that will be useful to you. 

If your student isn’t exactly sure what subject matter they want to do a project on, it might be wise to browse an online database of 8th grade science projects, like those found at http://www.akronlibrary.org/DBS/SFDB/Default.aspx or http://www.youth.net/nsrc/sci/sci.index.html, which you can look through by grade level or subject area. Databases like these are full of ideas and instructions, and are easier to use than just a simple general search that might bring you to an unreliable site. Another great resource for one-stop 8th grade science project ideas are the free guides found at http://www.middle-school-science-projects.com/guide.pdf.

Science Projects for Sixth Graders

Finding the right science project for 6th graders can be a bit difficult. It has to be something they can understand and do mostly for themselves, but also be able to hold their interest, and teach them something. You can help find the perfect 6th grade science project for your student by using some of the resources you have readily at your disposal, including your child’s science teacher, the library, and even resources on the internet. 

Consult with your child’s science teacher when trying to find a good science project idea, especially at the 6th grade level. This way, you’ll be sure to know what the class is currently studying to keep the project relevant but not redundant, and clarify any requirements or deadlines that some 6th graders might not quite know how to manage yet.

Science project books, easily found at the public library, are reliable and easy to use resources for finding and executing a science project. Trying the library is a great way to teach your child to search for books by subject matter, in this case looking for science projects or the subject matter that interests them, and to ask for help from the librarian if you need it. 

Also, the internet is a great place to find huge amounts of 6th grade science project ideas, but you have to know where to look to save yourself time. While you can begin with a general search for science project ideas, it might be a good idea to search more specifically for websites like http://www.akronlibrary.org/DBS/SFDB/Default.aspx that are searchable by subject matter or grade level, so that you aren’t finding projects that are too easy or difficult for your student. Another great tool is the free project guides found at http://www.middle-school-science-projects.com/guide.pdf .

Seventh Grade Science Projects on the Internet

The internet can be used to your advantage and you are sure to be able to find the perfect 7th grade science project for your student that will fulfill their science fair requirements, and hopefully follow their interests as well. The trick is to know where to look to get the best and most results. 

Start by searching more generally for science projects that suit your 7th grader’s science interests. For example, if they want to do a science experiment that has to do with star gazing or space, you can search  “7th grade science projects, astronomy” to be sure to find a project that is appropriate for their grade level.  Odds are, however, that you will need to find a more specific science project website in order to get the best results. 

There are certain websites that exist that host whole databases of science projects for kids of all ages, and can be searched by grade level or subject area. Some great science project databases include http://www.akronlibrary.org/DBS/SFDB/Default.aspx as well as http://www.youth.net/nsrc/sci/sci.index.html. These websites that are intended specifically for students searching for feasible and fun science projects will likely be more reliable and easy to use than doing a broader search, where the results might be hard to verify. Another good resource are the 7th grade project guides available for free at http://www.middle-school-science-projects.com/guide.pdf, that are designed with the usual hypothesis through results structure in mind.
