As I mentioned before, I am no science genius. I do not have a science degree and while in school, though I loved science, I used to think that science did not like me. My husband on the other hand, is a science major, so I can relax and not worry I’ll mess my kids up.
Now, that said, just because a homeschool mom is not a science geek, and is not married to a science geek, that does not mean she can’t teach her kids how to enjoy science and learn science.
Last month I shared about how media is a big tool in our homeschool when it comes to science. This month I would like to share with you 15 online science resources that you can use to help you teach science to your kids. These are especially good for elementary and middle school kids!
