One of the reasons parents give me for not doing experiments is the lack of supplies. Since most of the experiments included in homeschool curriculum and good experiment books use simple, easy to obtain supplies, it comes down to a lack of planning.
I’m guilty of this, too. I schedule experiments, but when it comes time to do the experiment I am missing a supply or two. (That’s why I like all-inclusive curriculum like Nancy Larson Science. All the supplies come in one box!)
I’m a list maker. I need to have lists to keep me organized and on task. To be sure we don’t miss out on any experiments this year, I created these science experiment planning printables. They are basically a collection of lists.
First, I can keep track of the experiments we want to do and the necessary supplies. Then, I have a master experiment and a master supply list.
To be sure I don’t buy what I already have, I keep a separate lists of what I have and what I need to buy.
