One of our favorite things to do in our homeschooling day is science experiments.
I don’t think we’ve ever tried one that we didn’t enjoy or learn something from, even if it failed miserably. Failing is usually incentive to try it again and see why it didn’t work the first time. We don’t do nearly as many science projects as I’d like, mainly because I don’t have the time to plan them. I love when I find easy to do science curriculum that does not require a ton of prep work on my part, such as The Magic School bus science packs (don’t miss the discount below). These science packs put everything together for you, so you can enjoy the project without spending so much time gathering and prepping materials.
That’s why I wanted to share these science experiments, science freebies, and science books that will make back-to-school or homeschooling fun for everyone.
