January 22, 2018 2 min read

As promised, for season 2 of the Tips for Homeschool Science Show we are opening up our conference session vaults. The first session we are going to share is Paige's most popular one – The Three Keys to Teaching Science.

To make things easier we'll be breaking up this session up into three easily-digested episodes, one for each key, which we’ll share over a month. But we wanted to create one go-to place for you all to find the all the information for this session. 

Also, we have a brand new virtual booth for you guys to "visit" on YouTube. At the Elemental Science Virtual Homeschool Science Conference, you can see all our available sessions and take a tour of our programs.

The Three Keys to Teaching Science

Teaching science at home really can be as easy as 1-2-3!

Session Description: In this session, Paige details the three key ingredients for teaching science in your homeschool. She also provides several tools and methods you can use to apply the keys to your homeschool education plan from preschool through high school.

Hands-on Science 101 {Three Keys to Teaching Science, Part 1}

Takeaway Tidbits from Part 1

->See this episode's outline and show notes.

To teach science without the hands-on aspect would make no sense.  It would be like a blind man watching a movie—it will sound right, but he really won’t have a complete picture of what is going on.

Experiments are the flesh of science.

I recommend doing at least one hands-on scientific activity once a week during the school year.

Takeaway Tidbits for Part 2

Science is a marriage of facts and applications.
As homeschoolers, we have a wide variety of options to teach science. We can use encyclopedias, living books, resources from the Internet, or textbooks.
Whatever you choose to share scientific information with your students, make sure it holds their interest.

Notebooking for Science 101 {Three Keys to Teaching Science, Part 3}

Takeaway Tidbits for Part 3

Students are far more likely to remember what they have learned when they write it down.
Always discuss before you ask your students to write down a thing.
Don't push your students to write beyond their abilities in science.
