Science-y Stuff...

I wrote in a recent post that "I have officially abandoned a pre-made science study", ditching "official" curricula in favor of good (living) books, hands-on, nature studies, etc. So what are we actually doing for science?

Well, at the moment...

 Time for the Great Backyard Bird Count!


And [possibly] upcoming:


  1. We just started using The Story of Science Aristotle and my 13 year old is really liking it. I bought the sudent and teacher guides, and we mostly use it as as discussion jumpoff point, and I pick things out of the teacher guide I think she might be interested in the cross curriculum suggestions. I wish we had discovered these at the beginning of the school year.

    I adore science. One of the things I love about homeschooling is delving deeper into science than I did as a child.

    As for "The Magic of Reality", I've been considering that book for my son. How do you and the kids like it?


What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.

Thanks for stopping by! I love comments :)
