What Are Some Ideas for School Science Projects Involving Animals?

School science projects involving animals include observing an animal's paw preference, studying an ant farm or teaching a dog a new trick. Other animal science projects are comparing how different animals keep warm, comparing frog eggs and bird eggs, and comparing frogs and toads.

If a child is interested in zoology, science project options include a project about bat sounds, causes of weight gain in mice, or how cats respond to recorded bird songs. If a child is interested in marine animals, possible science projects include recording fish school behavior, tracking hermit crabs or comparing songs from different pods of whales or dolphins.
