Highlights

You are your child's perfect teacher and with the right tool, you can teach science.

There is a misconception that science in a lofty subject best left to the experts.

Truth: The bulk of science can be understood, appreciated, and taught by a homeschooling mom.

The key here is to get a good curriculum, meaning it contains these three keys for teaching science, from a trusted source.

  • Key #1 – Performing Hands-on Scientific Tests
  • Key #2 – Gathering Information
  • Key #3 – Keeping a Record

How to choose science curriculum that will work for you:

  1. Figure out your goals for teaching science.
  2. Determine your student’s learning style.
  3. Decide how you would prefer to learn.
  4. Choose what you would like to study.

Having the right curriculum in place will provide you with the tools you need to teach science no matter what your experience is with the subject!
