Looking for some cool ways to incorporate science in your homeschool? Here’s 10 links to help do that.
These five were stumbled upon this week…
- Lick your rats and build a DNA molecule! Those are two real pages on this AWESOME site run by the University of Utah’s Learn Genetics page. Take your time exploring this site, because there are some really phenomenal, interactive pages.
- Science discovery timeline: Click on any subject related to math, technology or science to see the timeline of scientific thinking and discoveries. This is a great way to show how ideas develop, often from simple observations (such as Bacon noticing that the opposite coasts of the Atlantic Ocean fit like a jigsaw puzzle).
- Antimatter for kids! This CERN page teaches kids about the history of theories about antimatter, matter and what happens when they meet, in very simple, fun language. There’s even an art gallery by kids on the subject. Be sure to explore the rest of the award-winning site for oodles of information about antimatter for older students too.
- Snowflake galleries and snow science! This fantastic page is gorgeous and educational. And you can finally find out for sure if it’s true that no two snowflakes can ever be exactly alike!
- The Science Hobbyist – Want to lose a few hours? Head over to the links here then, including subjects like science fair ideas, nerd/misfit resources, kids’ science projects, “significantly worthwhile books,” videos, science myths in textbooks and TONS of links for homeschoolers.
And these five are by yours truly…
Incidentally, we got our science magazines already and Jack loves them. So they’re marketed for middle schoolers but they’re suitable for all ages.
