Build Something {Homeschool Science Tip of the Month from Elemental Science}

August 03, 2020 1 min read

Give your kids the tools and let them build something. Get a few ideas of what you can build in this homeschool science tip of the month from Elemental Science.

Homeschool Science Tip of the Month - Give your kids the tools to build something.

There's a meme out there that says physics is the branch of science concerned with using extremely long and complicated formulas to describe how a ball rolls. It cracks me up every. single. time.

And the deeper you get into physics, the more this becomes a reality. But during the elementary, middle, and high school years, physics doesn't have to be this complicated!

Learning about physics can be as simple as this month's tip - give your kids the tools to build something! You can do things like: 

  • Build a gumdrop and toothpick tower.
  • Build a popsicle stick bridge.
  • Build a zip line for stuffed animals.
  • Build a birdhouse or a bat-box. 
  • Build with LEGOS.
  • Build with K'nex kits.
  • Build and float foil boats.
  • Build and play Jenga!

Whatever you choose, your kiddos will learn a lot about physics just by building and playing with different materials!
