science for homeschoolers
Spring has sprung!
We live in the Pacific Northwest and there is no doubt that spring is in the air (Ah-choo!).

So why do we teach science anyway?
I have good news for you who fear science.
Science is simply curiosity.
It is important to explore scientific topics with your children so that their minds are stretched and they become problem solvers.
Do not get hung up on trying to figure out which areas to focus and what ideas need to be learned.
Simply explore your world from a scientific perspective.
Be prepared to dig deeper where there is interest.
Short list of Science topics to explore:
- Scientific Method
- The human body
- Survival Techniques
- Electricity and Magnetism
- Atoms and Elements
- Planets and The Universe
- Creation vs. evolution

- If you can think of a topic, there is a scientific question to be answered!

God is a scientist!
When we teach our children to be curious, they want to learn more.
The incredible thing about studying science is that the deeper you explore, the more God reveals Himself to us.
What a delight to look for a scientific answer and to discover the brilliance of our God!
