This month, I thought I would share with you all three reasons we do nature study in the winter. I’m not opposed to doing nature study in the other seasons, in fact we have impromptu nature study times year round. Rather, I want to highlight why nature study is still viable despite the cooler temperature.
Here at Sassafras Science headquarters Blaine and I get to try out lots of science stuff. Today, we are sharing what we think of the palm-sized microscope.
Adding a current events study to a subject can increase the student’s interest as well as inform him or her of the latest advances in the field. Having a student read a relevant article or two each month will enhance what he or she is learning in a subject.
This month, I wanted to share with you all how to incorporate the latest scientific news into your studies.
Fiona McRay has come by the Sassafras Science blog today to share the difference between gymnosperm vs. angiosperm plants!
Paige is back on the Sassafras Science blog to share with you all three easy steps for getting started with notebooking.
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!
I’m happy to be back on the Sassafras blog to share more about how to use living books to teach science to your elementary students.
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.
