Science Experiments for Children

As we started compiling projects and lists, we realized that Ann Zeise's A to Z Home's Cool Homeschooling already had a fantastic list, so we we're sharing it! Check out her Science Experiments for Kids page that includes links to favorites such as MadSciNet: The 24-hour exploding laboratory to The Learning Network on the NYTimes online.

Don't miss checking out her Field Trips list of great resources to help you get started on your educational exploration.

As you start working with your child at home, we suggest starting in the kitchen or outdoors. Both are easy -- kitchens lend themselves to great trial and error (be ready for a mess, and prepare a child-sized area) in a super inexpensive way, and the outdoors exploration allows children to do a lot independently (and you don't have to worry about the mess).

Homeschooling? Check out our Montessori teaching curriculum for parents at home as well as teachers.
