Science is one of those subjects where homeschooling shines.
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 science, including fun science curriculum, great science books and other cool science resources.
Fun Science Curriculum
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.
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.
