10 Pin Social Studies and Science Linky!

Each week I read everyone's 10 Pin Reading Linky posts, but this week I am actually linking up with Ashley from Just Reed.

Here are my top 10 social studies and science pins!

1. Water Cycle Simulation Game-I actually did this with my students last year and my students loved it! They also learned a lot from it!
Ready for Some Water Cycle Fun?

2. 15 Science Experiments: This site is full of fun science experiments that could be used when teaching the scientific method!


3. Fake Lung Experiment: How cool would this be in a human body unit?!

Breathing - lets make a lung, Science Sparks

4. Pool Noodle Race Track: Fun activity to use in a force and motion unit!


5. Energy Coasters: Definitely want to do this activity in my energy unit next year!


6. State Project Brochures: I am definitely doing this next year with our states studies.
State brochure - Using this with our 50 states exchange project.

7. State Cookie: This is also from The Inspired Classroom. This project would go great with the state brochures.


8. Explorers Foldable: We learn about so many different explorers in 4th grade. This foldable would be great to add into my instruction! P.S. can you tell I LOVE The Inspired Classroom's blog?!?!


9. Scientist Poster: I love this poster! Unfortunately the link to this poster is broken, so I'm not sure where this design came from. I think something like this would be great for starting out science at the beginning of the year!


10. Me on the Map: In social studies, I start the year out with a review of the continents and then discuss where we live. I love this project for the beginning of the year!


What great ideas have  you been pinning lately??



  1. These are some great Science and Social Studies pins. I've done the Me on the Map with my 4th graders, too. We focus a lot on geography the first nine weeks.

  2. I'm excited to see my energy coasters on your to-do list for next year! They are SO FUN! Thanks for the other ideas as well. I'm always looking for fun science activities.
