    We’re back with new episodes for the eleventh season of the Tips for Homeschool Science Show. In this season, we are talking about writing and science. I’ve gotten a lot of questions lately about lapbooks, notebooks, and what to expect, so I thought it was time to dedicate an entire season to the third key to teaching science—writing it down.

    3 Reasons We Continue To Do Nature Study During the Winter Months {Audio-blog from Elemental Science}

    3 Reasons We Continue To Do Nature Study During the Winter Months {Audio-blog from Elemental Science}

    We have shared often about how nature study is a great way to make science real and practical. In our homeschool, we lean towards doing impromptu nature study while we are already enjoying the outdoors. But as the weather turns colder should you bother with continuing to do nature study?
    This month, I thought we'd share three subjects that make us bundle up and brave the temps for winter nature study!

Short, sweet, and helpful!

Paige’s voice is easy to listen to, and her philosophy and tips keep me on track with our science goals for our homeschool. I love that I can listen while I’m cleaning up after lunch or folding a basket of laundry. No fluff or awkward product placement, just helpful advice and things to think through presented succinctly.

Making Science Manageable

Paige is easy to listen to and makes science seem much less intimidating for this Mom. Her curriculum Elemental Science is the perfect blend of experimentation, reading living books and options for all ages. I highly recommend using her curriculum and listening to podcast to keep you going when science just seems hard.
