While I’m sharing resources, I thought I’d throw out some science book ideas. These are just a few of the ones I have. Some are more teacher resource materials like the Janice VanCleave books and other experiment manuals. I had quite a collection to supplement my curriculum guide when I taught science in a public school classroom. I was always on the lookout for a simpler way to show a concept that was full proof. Nothing like 35 kids waiting on something to happen…and it doesn’t! I pulled these because some kids would have a great time working on activities from these books and they would make great ideas for the workboxes. Try checking them out of your library to see how they fit for your kids.
There used to be a red version too, but I don’t have it. This book is a combined volume of many smaller books on science topics with activities.
Worth it to have these as a basic collection of experiments that cover fundamental science concepts in different disciplines.
For the little guys- just some fun activities to intoduce concepts of things like weather and motion.
These workboxes sure have been fun to put together and I’m still getting it all sorted out. It’s been fun to survey our homeschooling materials to see what we can use and what we might have forgotten about.
I’ll keep posting as I remember things and put them together.
