tymmie asks:

I'd used the homemade sanitizer activity for my 2nd grader's science project. I didn't realize what was needed as far as a hypothesis..any suggestions

I wasn't aware after completing the activity, that I needed to put it in a science project format. I need to get a hypothesis and procedure...etc. I haven't did this, since I was in grade school. Any sugeestion or help would be highly appreciated

Hi Tymmie,

You can learn more about the scientific method and helping your child with science fair projects here: http://www.education.com/topic/help-child-with-science-fair-projects/

You can also locate science fair experiments for elementary school here: http://www.education.com/science-fair/elementary-school/

The activity, "Make Homemade Hand Sanitizer" doesn't fit the typical experiment format (with hypothesis and conclusion, etc.), but you might be able to use as a demonstration of chemistry. Consult with your child's teacher to see if demonstration projects are allowable for the assignment your child has received, and if the teacher would accept this activity for a demonstration project.

Thanks for asking!
