Play a Science Game {Homeschool Science Tip from Elemental Science}

Homeschool Science Tip - Play a game for science this month!

My mom was an elementary school teacher before my brother and I came along. She mainly taught second grade and because of this, she had a whole cabinet full of educational games. 

But you see when we were younger we just thought we had a lot of cool games that our mom would play with us. We had so much fun that we had no idea we were actually learning or reviewing material at the same time.

Her passion for making learning fun spilled over into me and into our homeschool. It's why we have Friday Fun Day and a big part of those Fridays are games. We play language games, logic games, math games, and science games.

The kids love it! And I love it because we are reviewing what we have learned in an interesting way. So this month, my tip for you all is to play a game for science.

Your game can be a simple one - like the Molecular Motion game that our son came up with when we were learning about the different states of matter. Basically, the caller (you) cries out either solid, liquid, or gas and the players (your students) have to imitate those states. In the solid state, the player freezes. In the liquid state, the player moves smoothly and slowly, gliding around the room. And in the gas state, the player jumps, bounces, and runs around. It's hilarious to watch and it gives the students a feel for how molecules move in the different states.

But you don't have to come up with your own game, there are lots of science game options out there for free or to buy! Here is a list of science game options from Our Journey Westward:
