Finally! Here is a book written in a way that any homeschooling parent, regardless of educational background, can easily follow. This book also makes it easy to teach Science to children of different ages, at the same time! My favorite part is that the lessons do not require a lot of planning or expense. Two words characterize each lesson: fun and easy! Thanks, Ms. Killbride!

Wonderful manual, Sue Kilbride! Step by step directions, materials lists (that are readily available in our semi-rural area), extra activities – it’s all in here. It inspired me to start a science club for my son and his friends – no small feat for me. The labs are clearly laid out and easy to execute. We are very excited to share this find with our friends!
This collection of fun science lessons and activities are designed to offer hands on experiments that will satisfy the curious nature of children, while making it easier for parents to teach science. Kids love to pour, measure, taste, alter, and explore their environment. If you can direct their experimentation to teach a concept, then you are more likely to help them remember the material.
