If you ask either of my boys what their favorite school subject is, they will immediately and emphatically tell you its science. Earth science, space science, biology. They don’t have a favorite area of science, they just love all things science.
They both take science courses within their online curriculum, but outside of those core lessons, they pretty lead an interest led plan of study when it comes to science. They are always coming up with something they want to learn more about (recently they started their first garden and said that science about plants was awesome), and we honestly just do what we can to not instruct them, but to make available any science tools and resources they need to learn on their own.
Don’t be afraid to let the TV help you with science either. Some of our most exciting evenings at home, are when we are all sitting around watching the Science Channel. 🙂
