Homeschool Science Tip of the Month - Add in a few activities for fall science.
Pumpkin spice lattes. Apple pies. Autumn nut mixes. Orange, red, and yellow decorations. And cranberry candles.
Here in Florida, we pull out all the stops for fall because it sure doesn't feel like fall yet. As I record this tip, our temps are still in the 90’s! This far south, our autumnish weather comes around December. But that doesn’t stop us from finding ways to mark the change of the seasons.
Beyond the fall flavors, colors, and smells, we also like to do a few seasonal science activities on our Friday Fun Days. So, this month our monthly tip is to add in a few fall science activities to highlight the change in the season!
Here are a few ideas:
- Make a fall leaf book.
- Grow your own pumpkins from seeds.
- Explore buoyancy with cranberries.
- Dissolve candy pumpkins.
- Erupt an apple or a pumpkin.
- Peek inside a pinecone.
- Chunk a pumpkin with a homemade catapult.
- Learn about acids and bases with cranberry juice.
- Make nature prints with fall leaves and berries.
- Watch why the fall leaves change colors.
Well, there are a few ideas for adding a bit of fall science to your homeschooling plans this season.
Here are the links to posts where these activities are explained:
Thanks for listening and I hope you have a great month playing with fall science!
