When you find a homeschool math curriculum that works for your kids you want to share it, right? That’s why I’m excited to share this review of the math curriculum we use with our kids and how Teaching Textbooks has made a great program even better! Teaching Textbooks compensated me for this post because they know how much we love it and wanted me to
There is something magical about how a pendulum moves, even though it’s path is entirely scientific. A pendulum moves in a predictable pattern determined by several factors, including the length of the pendulum, how much force is applied to the push, and how heavy the pendulum is. By experimenting with physics, kids can make their very own pendulum salt art and learn a little more

Science experiments can be so much fun for kids, especially when the experiment is yummy! Try this jelly bean taste experiment to learn more about the sense of taste and how it is linked to the sense of smell. Have you ever smelled something cooking and in your mind you could actually taste it without even putting it into your mouth? Have you ever had

Using a quality homeschool biology curriculum like BJU Press Biology will make it a breeze. A year or so ago, I was given a sneak peak at the new 5th edition high school homeschool biology textbook from BJU Press. I could
Exposing children to chemistry is as easy as opening up your kitchen cabinets. Grab a few ingredients, mix them together, and you’ve got a reaction! Try this fun sudsy bubble experiment to take a common science experiment to a new level. Have you checked out The Homeschool Scientist’s Chemistry Resource Page?

A fractal is a repeating pattern in nature that starts simple but gradually gets more complex. You can explore the basics of fractals, the math behind them, and why they exist while making these simple fractal suncatchers.

Water molecules like to stick together. On the surface where the water meets the air, water molecules cling even more tightly to each other. This is called surface tension. To lower the surface tension of water, you can heat it up or add soap or detergent. These two things cause the attraction between the water molecules to lessen.

This post was sponsored by KOOV by Sony. All opinions are mine. Take the fear out of teaching STEM with a fun, robotics kit that will have your kids creating, coding, and problem solving in no time. Right now, there is a big push for STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math), or STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math), education in the U.S as technology advances
