Who knows a great science project that'll be sure to get an A?

There was a man in the late 1800's who had a theory. You could put a man in a metal gage and apply as much voltage as possible and the man would survive. This is true, as long as you are not connected to earth. I showed my kids this by getting a transformer. Had one grab one wire, then some people hold hands and grab the other wire. Then I applied a voltage with a double A battery. They had 6,000 volts running through them, didn't even know it. Until I collapse the circuit by removing the wire from the battery. That's called induction. The amps that a AA battery produces is low. Milli amps, which is current and is what k_lls. Kind of like bird on a wire. Ever wonder why they don't get hurt? Cause there body is at the same potential as the wire. 18,000 volts. Anyways, I think that can be cool. Another suggestion to prove this point in comments. It's an A.

You can get a bare 14 AWG wire. One or two feet. Cheap. Have rubber sole shows on. Stick that bare wire inside the hot side of the plug in class. Hot side is the side winking at you. One side is bigger then the other. Make sure you are not touching anything conductive and no one is or will touch you. If you do get shocked, it's will not hurt you, may give you a good jolt, but nothing serious.

You can ask the class if they think you will get shocked? Most, if not all will say yes. Teach them about induction, very cool, different. Not many understand the way that electricity works.

eggs - how to tell if raw or cooked without cracking; how to tell how old an egg is by "floating" it in water...eggs are marvelous! I won't tell you the answers to those science ideas, but you get my drift.

you could try to make a light bulb light up with a wire and a battery

Make a model of the cell out of different colors of clay. To really make it awesome you could make it out of something edible (different type of candy on top of round, frosted cookies for example) and bring supplies for your class so they can make their own too (brownie points).

You could make it more academic by making different types of cell cookies like neurons, muscle cell etc or use it different cookies (in a series) to explain common cell functions like phagocytosis, pinocytosis, apoptosis (cell death), cell signalling, mitosis, meiosis etc.

Last year I did my project on what type of wood burns the longest. It was pretty easy, all you had to do was make a fire and time it with different woods. I got an A+:-D
