It’s Hands On Science

Why Nancy Larson Science?

Kayla at The Arrowood  Zoo

Here’s the third reason I decided this would be an awesome fit for my family:
3 – Hands on. The science is a very hands-on approach to learning. It is all about observing the environment around you and using that as much as possible. Again with everything being supplied, you have no time wasted gathering the items to best explain the lesson or topic. Having a very energetic boy that learns great with hands-on activities was just one more added reason I thought this would work wonders with his learning for the year. A personal draw for my family was also the notebooking approach that is incorporated into several of the lessons. My children love this approach and we have used it in our homeschool from the beginning.
So this year our focus in Nancy Larson Science 2 is:
Investigating Physical Properties of Matter
Observing Rocks & Minerals
Investing Forces & Work
Examining Simple Machines
Exploring Sound & Light
Investigating Birds
Science2Birds
Zachary said that out of all of these topics he thought that “Observing Rocks and Minerals” would be his favorite while Lexi thought “Investigating Birds” would be her favorite. I can’t wait to update as we go along with this new curriculum.
I am excited and so far this first week was wonderful!
Easy, fast and wonderfully put together!
2 thumbs up for Nancy Larson Science!

The lessons are scripted

 

Why Nancy Larson Science?

Here’s the second reason I decided Nancy Larson Science was a tremendous fit for my family.

2 – The lessons are scripted. Not that I do not talk with my children or ask questions about the topic we are learning, but to have it scripted helps keep more of an order together. This is our first week using this and I can’t tell you how peaceful I feel because I know that everything is laid out for me. Even when teaching young children, I believe it is awesome to have a plan all laid out and simply following it gets awesome results. No stress on your part, homeschool mom (I have enough stress; I do not need additional stress for science.)
