Great Science Resources ~ Homeschool Village

Homeschool Village

The topic this week at the Homeschool Village is science. Truthfully, this is an area that until recently I wouldn’t have recommended much of anything ~ because we were inconsistent and hadn’t found anything that worked and was enjoyed by all of us.

Until this year that is.

What made the difference? I’ll give you a little teaser and tell you that Nancy Larson Homeschool Science has been pivotal in changing our minds. Both the kids and I are excited about the Science 1 program that we’ve been using this year…and I’ll be sharing more about it next Tuesday with you all!

In addition to our new science program, we’ve started doing simple {but How to Do Science Experiments with Childrenfun} experiments using the book How to Do Science Experiments with Children. The experiments use easy-to-find objects and also include record sheets for kids to fill out with their predictions and experiment results. Each experiment also includes teaching tips and explanations. Here are a few of the fun experiments we’ve done using this book:

Don’t forget to visit Homeschool Village and see what other moms are sharing about this topic!

  • Making Raisins Dance...that's a fun one. I had a 13 yr old at church (she is homeschooled) tell me last week that is one of her favorites....her eyes were shining and she could barely contain herself as she explained the experiment to me!!

  • I can't wait to hear your review! I was looking at the program but haven't heard of anyone using it. Would love to know what you think, the good, the bad and the ugly:)

  • thanks so much for the links! We purchased a science experiments book to do on rainy days - or, was supposed to do on rainy days! I have this crazy fear that none of them will work out and so I do not attempt many!

    thanks for linking up (you've been missed)

  • That sounds like a fun book! I have been SO BAD at science ... sigh ... I'm going to look up that book, my middle one would love it.

  • This is wonderful! I am slowly building my curriculum to check out when we formally begin HS, from your reviews. They are incredibly helpful. That book looks awesome! Thank you!

  • Awesome! We are doing Apologia Science, but we only do some of the experiments...the boys love it though. Thank you for sharing!

  • I love Evan Moore books! I really like the look of the Nancy Larson Science, but can't justify the cost. If I had more than one child, maybe.

  • So glad you've found something that is working for you! This is our first year to *really* do science (Apologia) as well and we are all having so much fun!

  • I love the "How to..." book! That sounds easy enough for me to do too! Thanks for the suggestion!
