Activities for Kids

Enjoy science and learning activities for each age group

Welcome to the Bell Museum’s online adventures! Exploration and discovery can happen anywhere. Here you can find resources, videos, and activities to help you explore science at home and in the world around you!

The video experiences are organized by grade levels (K–2, 3–4, 5–6, and 7–8), with all activity information embedded in each approximately 35-minute video and supporting instructions and resources below.

The video lessons are designed for children to experience independently—whether all at once or with breaks as needed. But of course, you may find your whole family wants to join in the fun! Share and tag us when you try some of these fun activities, too: @BellMuseum.

Space Activities

Come along with us as we go on a space adventure! In this 35 minute video, we are going to learn all about astronauts and explore our solar system and the moon. We will make our own moon craft and a science journal to help observe the phases. On this page there are also some additional resources so you continue learning more about space.
