My friend’s daughter has a science exhibition in her school. She is in grade five and has to make a science project around the theme of forces.

As a homeschool parent, science projects were some of our most fun parts of our curriculum. Depending on the skill level of the student, there is a wide range of experiments available.
1. How does water affect seed germination?
2. What material best keeps an egg from breaking when dropped?
3. What can you put on an apple to keep it from browning?
1. Design a solar oven.
2. How does salt affect density?
3. Mummify a hot dog (This one is a favorite of elementary age kids because it's so gross!!)
1. Extract DNA from an onion.
2. Swab surfaces for germs and bacteria.
3. Understand the laws of motion using a fidget spinner.
It's definitely a good idea to find out if the student has certain areas of interest. Like with the mummification experiment, if the student has an interest in Ancient Egypt, this is a perfect one!
I would also suggest watching YouTube videos, or do Google search how to create a science board. Spacing and font size will be important when setting it up, and seeing examples can help the student better visualize how it should look.
What a fun focus for your daughter's science project. Here are a few websites you might find useful.
