Thanks for great ideas. i also am a retired science (middle school) teacher. I know I should do more science stuff at home, since many schools don’t go very deep. I think you may have just gottena new subscriber.

Oh, how wonderful. My kids would love this!

I’ll have to show my daughter, she LOVES stuff like this.
Unfortunately, Science is the only class I always failed, or barely passed.
Happy T13!

Hi. I love the activities, and the pics. My 6 yr old is science obsessed at the moment, and always complains they don’t do enough at school. She loves to play with my science education kits (I’m a k-6 teacher – casual) and learn thru play. Even my 3 year old now understands the basics of magnetism!
