Fabulously Fun Science Curriculum Ideas

Homeschool science is one of those subjects where at-home learning really comes in handy!

Kids love it (it’s pretty hard to do science without some sort of huge, messy, potentially explosive activity from time to time)! And the possibilities for fun science projects and science experiments are endless!

Here are our family’s favorite fun ways to teach homeschool science, including fun science curriculum, great science books and other cool science resources (some of them even include cool ways to teach math and science together)!

 

Here are fun homeschool science curriculum and resources. Are your favorites featured? Don't miss all the great ideas!

Fun Science Curriculum

Apologia--WEBApologia Science

by Apologia

We are huge fans of this curriculum! We have completed several of their “Exploring Creation” topics (Astronomy, Botany, Zoology, Anatomy and Physiology, Chemistry and Physics) and have been really happy with each one.

I love that the information, first and foremost, points kids back to God and references biblical stories and scripture. Apologia is also written from a creationist standpoint.Their materials are packed with quality information, and the Notebooking Journals for each topic really give kids a wonderful way to demonstrate their knowledge.

We have only used their Elementary-aged resources, but they are also well-loved for their middle school and high school science resources as well. Highly recommend!


Fun Homeschool Science Unit Studies

Unit studies are an easy, natural way to do science!

Since topics are a la carte, you can pick the specific subjects that your kids are interested in. And since many of them are short in nature, you can switch it up to coincide with field trips or changes in season.

Here are four great resources for gathering unit studies. (Note: Delightful Planning by Marcy Crabtree isn’t a unit study, but helps moms learn how to organize and plan unit studies.
