I admit I am not a science teacher. I don’t absolutely love preparing science lessons or experiments, so when I heard about SOS, I was thrilled.
Switched on Schoolhouse is the curriculum we use for science and it has all the boys’ lessons, questions, experiments, reports, grades, etc., all on the computer. I purchased the fourth grade level to use for all three boys because I want them to stay together and learn the same thing. I just make Hayden and Carson do more work than Bailey, and I read the text to Bailey, while the others work independently.
I had also purchased the kit that was sold by a separate company which included many of the things I would need for each experiment. Like iron filings. Who has that stuff?!? I was so glad I had purchased that kit when it came time to do an experiment last week. (I wrote about SOS as well as the company that sells the kit here.)
Here are a few pictures of the bigs turning a plain old nail into a magnet. Carson even drew his name in iron filings.
Parker was happy as long as he had cheese to snack on.
