Activities are brief but have simple support tools.

It was easy to navigate and had some nice topics. Some of the topics had simple activities that would need to be paired with further investigations.

Hands-On Science Projects & Games

The 24/7 Science website provides 4 categories of simple, easy to execute and understand science projects/experiments which are supplemented with games that reinforce concepts.

Each provided step by step instructions for conducting the projects. Afterwards, students could compare their answers and project findings with students from all around the world.

Exceptional learning needs students will have no problem participating in the projects due to the simplicity by which projects are executed. Each project is high on the observation scale which lends itself towards discovery learning. Each project is teacher-led, but hands-on for students. Projects appear to have been designed to gradually help students think across all levels of the cognitive domain of learning. These projects lend themselves well towards building exciting student discussions in small groups and ultimately the full class.
