These fall chemistry experiments focus on chemistry with fun fall themes, which makes it a bit more fun for kids who might be a bit more reluctant to explore science and chemistry!

What is a Chemistry Experiment?

Wikipedia defies chemistry as:

The branch of science that deals with the identification of the substances of which matter is composed; the investigation of their properties and the ways in which they interact, combine, and change; and the use of these processes to form new substances.

Because chemistry is involved with matter, investigating matter, and learning about interactions between materials, chemistry science can be just about anything!

A chemistry experiment should help kids learn about the world and matter specifically. Chemistry is all about exploring the world and learning about how things interact with each other.

Before high school, chemistry is more of an exploration and less math, so it’s the fun part!

How to Do Chemistry Experiments with Kids

Don’t miss this list of fall STEM challenges, or these fall STEM activities for middle school!

A chemistry experiment for a child should allow them to find out what happens when things interact, mix, and change.

Because chemistry is so hands on, most kids love it!

The most important thing to remember is that children need to be taught good lab safety practices, even with these relatively safe chemistry activities.

These fall chemistry experiments are perfect for kids exploring chemistry in elementary or middle school!

Middle school and elementary students will love these hands-on chemistry experiments for the classroom (but you can also do them at home!).
