Young Scientists at Play: Colour and Fizz

After we arrived back from our pond study this morning, the older girls kindly offered to cook up a storm in the kitchen for lunch whilst T11 and I got down to the business of setting up the science nook.  This week I had planned to let the littles discover what happens when vinegar is…

Looking Back – Astronomy Presentation

I'm doing a series called looking back, documenting learning the children and I did together prior to me blogging.  To be honest it's more for my sake than anyone else's.  Blogging is like having a scrap-book, but takes about a quarter of the time to stay up to date. My latest offering is astronomy.  I'm not blogging…

Homeschool Biology: Cells

Welcome to our homeschool biology lesson about cells!
