Mad Science Day is when we dedicate a whole school day to exploring science. Our fifth grade team has a tradition of holding Mad Science Day each year on October 31. This year it fell on a half day, but we still packed in plenty of learning and fun!
We prepared for Mad Science Day by talking about the scientific method. We realized that the activities we’d be doing would be investigations rather than experiments, since we were not going to follow all the steps of the scientific method. Still, we recorded data and wrote up our conclusions for each investigation and we learned a lot from what we observed!
Here’s a video showing some of the things we did on Mad Science Day.
