I just love putting together the monthly science calendars! It’s fun trying to find a science angle for various holidays and researching important scientific discoveries and they scientists who made them. All this research, plus stuff just for fun goes into each calendar.
The whole idea of the monthly science calendar is to add a little science to every day. The calendars are designed to be quick studies to broaden your student’s horizons and to get them excited about science.
Some parents and teachers use the science calendars as a fun way to jump start the school day. Others use them to add a break in between other subjects. In our house, our kids are 12 and 16 so they are fairly independent learners. I let them fit the calendar into their day wherever they can. It’s fun to see them set up experiments and activities on their own, working together, or discussing the day’s topic at lunch.
What’s In The July Science Calendar?
Since July is the height of summer, there are plenty of outdoor science activities. Your kids will make solar prints, learn about summer storms, make a sundial, and learn about how the sun affects the temperature. Shark Week is, also, in July, so there are tons of shark study resources so you can have the best Shark Week ever!
There are lots of other great science activities and interesting information that will inspire your kids. The June Science Calendar is FREE to The Homeschool Scientist’s email subscribers.
