I personally believe that incorporating hands-on scientific tests are critical to success in science education. When I say “hands-on scientific tests,” I mean things like:
- Nature study,
- And science fair projects.
However, I also understand the love/hate relationship many people have with science experiments. Even I have been know to skip an experiment or two along the way!
One of my goals here at the Eb Lab is the provide you with solutions for your homeschool science problems. So, in the past I have share 5 easy tips for experiment success and I have defined the difference between scientific demonstrations and experiments.
Here are a few more posts I have written on science experiments for homeschoolers:
- The Scientific Method in a Nutshell
- How to record an experiment
- How to make your own experiment kit
- All about experiment variables
- But I don’t have the experiment supplies…
- How to scale one experiment for multiple ages
- Observation is Key
I also love mixing up experiments and activities for you to use in your homeschool. Almost all of these have free corresponding printables for your students. Check out these science experiments for homeschoolers:
- All About DNA
- All About Seasons
- Dry Ice Exploration
- Habitat vs. Biome
- In Search of Animal Scat
- Inside the Cone
- Kitchen Acid Test
- Making a Seed Board
- Nature Prints
- Spring Flower Dissection
