Have you visited the realm of the failed science experiment? {Episode 23}     

Do you find that your experiments fail more often than not? Do you struggle with the hands-on aspect of science? In this episode of the Tips for Homeschool Science Show, I’ve got a little surprise up my sleeve just for you!

If you found these homeschool science tips to be helpful, would you please take a moment to rate it on iTunes or Google Play? This would help me tremendously in getting the word out so that more ear buds are filled with science-teaching encouragement.

The Highlights

You are not alone – a look at our failed yeast experiment!

What to do:

  • Don’t sweat it.
  • Perform an AFER – short for the anatomy of a failed experiment.
  • Remember than a failed experiment doesn’t mean a failed learning experience.

The Surprise – A whole lot of experiment help in our brand new book!!

In The Homeschooler’s Guide to Experiments we will chat about the following:

  • What experiments really are.
  • Why we need to include the hands-on aspect of science as a part of our homeschooling plans.
  • How to handle hands-on science in the lab and in nature.
  • And a whole host of topics that will make doing experiments in your home much, much easier.

You can read the book as a whole or skip to the chapters you need to read at a particular moment. Either way, this book is your chance to pick my brain about how homeschoolers can do experiments in their kitchens, backyards, and sometimes even in their bathrooms!
