She blinded me with SCIENCE!!!

Science is a big part of our homeschool!
Think of it! You can use science for EVERYTHING! Spelling, learning to read, reading, math, history, art, social studies and most definitely for SCIENCE!LOL

Luckily my boys LOVE science just as much as I do and we are able to incorporate it into nearly everything we do! Finding a homeschool science curriculum that worked for us and was worth my moolah was important to us! Doesn't matter the cost, if it SUCKS! Have a huge boxed science kit that cost my mother a pretty penny. It is HORRIBLE! It still sits on the shelf and we scavenge it all the time for things we need to do FUN and more hands-on experiments!!

We are very outdoorsy people and into rocks, plants and animals. Earth and Space study is our FAV and what we are doing this year for our Science!!! The best part is, our large rock collection and numerous books we have on hand has helped us and we are only 2 months in!!!

I even push science in the childcare!! We have a whole shelf dedicated to science! Rats, anoles, worm farm, crickets, live plants, rocks to touch, prisms, etc. are there for kids to check out and explore! I even have a small tote that I change out weekly or so with stuff in it! Right now, it has leaves. All colors, shapes and sizes! Hold them, touch them, smell them, crunch them and tell about them!

So, next time you are concerned about science.... think of all the ways you can use it in your homeschool!!
Happy Homeschooling!
