Welcome to Science At Home
The objective of science at home activities is to provide science investigations that are more homeschool friendly. To accomplish this, I need input from homeschoolers.
I have been working with several homeschool families. Even though two of my grandchildren were homeschooled, I feel that I am just now understanding what homeschooling is all about.
It not my intent to come to the rescue of homeschoolers. Instead, I am interested in sharing ideas. I have written 50+ science books for kids and educators. So I am coming to the table with science knowledge as are many of you. But, you know more about the methods that work in your environment–your home. Together, I hope that we make science less threatening for many homeschooler–maybe this describes you. Educating your children in a way that makes learning science fun as well as challenges will be our goal.
Homeschool Projects: 1. Fun With Water
I’ll be adding new investigations to this unit, so check back often.
The Introductory Activity: The Blooming of a Paper Flower provides basic information that will be useful in all the other investigation. Grant, the child in the above photo, and his sister, Meredith, took part in the “field-testing” of this water absorbing investigation. Their mother, Andrea Roseman, shared their experiences and helped me to add the “magic homeschool” touches. A review from Andrea is in the sidebar.
