This video-based, “open and go” program uses real questions from real kids to get exploring with short 5-15 minute lessons followed by hands-on activities to help kids discover the answer to the question. 

Intended for K through grade 5 classrooms, Mystery Science is also available to homeschoolers. Unit topics are designated based on general age range – covering all kinds of different areas of science. 

You just watch the video, gather the supplies needed for the activity, and then give it a try. Some lessons have a wrap up video after the activity, and all seem to have extention ideas to add in other content – reading suggestions, additional videos, field trip ideas, etc.
