Home School Science

Looking to liven up your homeschool science curriculum?

Why not try out some fun science project and craft ideas and see where they take you?

Over our years of homeschooling we have done some fantastic science experiments and projects - as well as finding some great resources.

I have been adding them to the website and wanted to pull them all together for you in one place. There are all kinds of ideas here. Everything from silly putty to smelting metal. And all easy enough for you to try together at home.
