My youngest daughter that she asked me to only do experiments instead of all the Sonlight worksheet. I purchased a “365 Simple Science Experiments” book and gave her free access to the Science equipment box. I included a stack of blank Science Observational notebook pages next to it and let her explore and experiment to hearts content. Some days she did 5 experiments!

Thank you so much for sharing this helpful resource. I am a new teacher and finding excellent material to help educate our children can be both difficult and expensive. Thank you again for helping new teachers bring age-appropriate materials into the classroom and help visual learners.
