My kids love homeschool Science, but I often find myself having trouble making our fun experiments educational! Homeschool mom, do you know what I mean? Sure you found a amazing Science project online, at the Library, or even in your box curriculum, and it was a LOT of fun, but then your teaching stemmed from it, just…falls flat. The kids don’t really retain what you’re trying to teach them, but “Gosh! That was a fun project!”
That’s where we all need a little help, right? I know I do anyway! Wouldn’t it be great to have someone to listen to who is skilled in making Science Fun AND teaching it at the same time? Someone who can really widen your Science teaching skills in ways you can only get from someone with experience? If you agree, checkout this announcement:
