I have to confess something. My kids love science but I struggled with it in school. So when my husband and I considered homeschooling our two boys, one of my biggest worries was teaching Science. You too?
Well, fear not mama! I stumbled upon something that is a game-changer. This is a really awesome thing for homeschool families and really any family that wants to foster a love of Science.
It’s the easiest way I’ve found to teach Science to Kids
Let me start by saying, my kids love watching videos. They only get to watch them when their dad or I am around of course. They are huge fans of YouTubers like Zach King, Aarons Animals and Steve Spangler.
Some of the videos they watch are for fun and others actually teach them something (even if they don’t realize it). For example, Steve Spangler’s videos are all about Science. He has a remarkable way of making Science fun. He has a couple YouTube Channels focused on getting kids excited about Science — they are The Spangler Effect and Sick Science. I highly recommend both of them! Even as a grown-up who thought she didn’t care for Science, I really enjoy these videos.
I remember sitting there one day watching the videos, thinking to myself, wouldn’t it be great if Steven Spangler had science projects he could just send to my house. Kind of like Kiwi Crate … but for Science. So I Googled it, (naturally) why not! Low and behold he DOES have science kits! (Thank you Steven!)
Fun Easy Way to Teach Science to Kids
The kits come as part of what’s called the Science Club. It works like this — you sign up for the level of club membership that works for you, and then each month you get a box of goodies! Each box is free shipping!
We’ve been using the kits for a few months now and let me just say they are awesome! They come with several experiments – enough to do 1-2 each week. Each experiment comes with easy to follow step-by-step instructions and explanations.
I really enjoy these kids as a parent because my kids get to have fun with Science, but they are also learning. Through the comprehensive guide, I can easily ask them thought-provoking questions, and help them understand concepts. (Plus I learn a little bit along the way too).
