Sixth grade science project ideas are located on websites for MPM School Supplies and Dreamworks' School of Dragons. Both sites offer activities for both life and physical sciences.
MPM provides multiple pages of science project ideas. For example, sixth graders can learn how to test the effectiveness of sunscreens and make a solar oven from a pizza box. Many activities have links to other websites, such as PBS Kids and Steve Spangler Science, which contain additional descriptions and directions.
Each task at the School of Dragons connects to a printable and downloadable activity sheet that lists materials, provides instructions and contains an explanation. Projects include making a water clock, growing bread mold and cleaning pennies.
