Science is defined as the systematic body of knowledge. Physics, Chemistry, Biology and Maths are the core subjects of science. Science includes practical applications of what you have learned in class i.e. the formulas, experiments, equations etc.


But to carry out such practical applications, various experiments are needed. Students learn with several experiments that are included in every subject. For instance, in Chemistry, you have to mix the two acids to make a new one. Similarly, in Physics, there are experiments related to inertia, gravity, etc. 

In Biology, you learn about animals, their mechanisms and much more. Basically, every subject in science has related experiments. In this article, we will further see science buddies 5th grade project ideas and experiments.

Simple Science Experiments for Class 5th 

Students learn through experiments that are taught to them in the classroom in a theoretical way. There are many experiments that you can learn which can help you in the long run. Some of the experiments are listed below.

1. Tornado in a Bottle:

This is one of the interesting science experiments for Class 5th. All you have to do is, take a bottle and connect it with a device. Then water will make it’s way through the device into the bottle making it look like a tornado. 

2. Lava Lamp:

Now we can create a lava lamp with household materials like food coloring, vegetable oil and a bottle. Once this project is made, you can showcase it at fairs or exhibitions.

3. Anemometer:

An anemometer is a device that is used to measure the speed of the wind. A good anemometer is created using ultrasonic and laser measuring technology. There are various kinds of anemometers based on situations and ecosystems. Students can learn this experiment from YouTube. It is an easy experiment to do.  

4. Fruit Battery:

In this experiment, students have to connect fruits to the constructed batteries and test them to know which fruit gives the maximum electric current. Students have to determine whether a particular fruit is suitable for generating electricity or not. This is also an interesting experiment that the students can practice.

Some other projects include:

  1. Making Sugar Crystals
  2. Diaper Dissection
  3. How to make fizzy lemonade
  4. Put out the fire
  5. Mnemonics
  6. The Mozart Effect
  7. Biodegradation experiments

These are some of the very simple science experiments. There are many other experiments that you can do to increase your knowledge regarding a particular subject. 

Water is important for our survival. Similarly, it is important for experiments as well. There are water experiments for class 5th. Below are some of the experiments related to water.

  1. Do this experiment in a group. Below is the list of things. Put it in water and write down whether it sinks or floats.

  1. An empty bowl
  2. Pebbles
  3. Iron nail
  4. Matchstick
  5. Empty plastic bottle
  6. Bottle half-filled
  7. A bottle full of water
  8. Aluminium foil
  9. Soap cake
  10. A piece of ice
  11. Puffed Puri
  12. Steel Plate

2. This experiment will also be done in groups. Below is the list of some things that you need to dissolve in bowls or glasses of water. Write down whether they dissolve or not.

  1. Salt
  2. Soil
  3. Chalk Powder
  4. One spoon milk
  5. Oil 

The above–mentioned water projects and experiments can also be considered as the science projects for Class 4th and 5th

Science Projects working models for Class 5th 

Apart from the projects that are mentioned above, there are other experiments and models for Class 5th students through which they can learn and understand the fundamentals of science and related practical applications.

1. Float a Marker Man: 

This experiment is based on the insolubility of dry-erase marker ink. This is a water experiment.  

2. Solar Oven: 

This oven cooks food without electricity! Isn’t it amazing? This is one of the energy source projects that the students can easily learn. 

3. Bouncy Balls: 

In this experiment, borax is used for making slime. Students can practically apply their knowledge of polymers i.e. borax is mixed with glue, water and cornstarch. This is one fun experiment that you can try.

4. Leak-proof Bag: 

This experiment is also based on polymers.

5. Dry Ice Vapour: 

This experiment is based on sublimation thereby, turning the solid ice into gas. The surface tension is created resulting in a giant bubble filled with vapours. 


6. Blow the Balloons: 

Can you imagine, you can blow up balloons without actually blowing them! Yes, you can do that. You just need to be clear about acids and bases. Fill a bottle with vinegar and a balloon with baking soda. Now, shake both the things and see the balloon inflate.  

These are some of the science experiments for 5th graders. You can practice these experiments for fun and educational purposes. You will learn a lot from these science experiments. Therefore, you can enjoy while learning about them. 

Class 5th is considered as a learning class i.e. learning about subjects, activities, hobbies etc. Students try to put their theoretical knowledge in experiments. There are very simple science experiments that are mentioned in this article. Students are advised to try such experiments in order to learn different concepts of the core subjects. Thus, science is an enjoyable subject including both experiments and theoretical knowledge.
