I love living books. These books bring a subject to life in a way that no textbook can.
Living books hold the students’ interest and engage them with the information they are learning in a way that the students will not easily forget. We use them as often as we can in our homeschool—in history, grammar, math, and of course, science!
There are three essentials that must be included in each and every homeschool science curriculum. Each of these will help your students gain a true understanding of the subject.
Since many of us are gearing up for the upcoming school year, I wanted to take a moment to share with you all the three essentials of homeschool science.
I trust that they will help you as you prepare and organize a plan for next year.
Last month we shared three tips to help you avoid the summer science slip. The first of those tips was to observe, observe, observe.
We wanted to give you some practical ideas for ways to incorporate observation into your summer plans. One of the best ways to do this is through impromptu nature study.
Ahh, the lazy days of summer.
Time to sleep in.
Time to sit back and relax by the pool with a cool drink.
Time to watch every bit of information you worked so hard to share with your students just wash away like waves at the beach.
Umm...not so much.
