Blooming Scientists is our homeschooling parent community where you’ll find suggestions to increase your child’s learning, ideas to get more out of your science lessons, and ways to build unit studies for other subjects from science lessons.
Why use science as the basis for other subjects? Science is all around us, in every invention and everything we see. It is us. Science is also what children naturally love doing: collecting bugs, planting flowers, watching clouds, training a puppy, or looking at rainbows. Our natural curiosity motivates us to learn about science. That motivation will move through other subjects, creating greater learning opportunities and making teaching easier. Isn’t that what we all want?
Over the next few months, you’ll see our community grow. The foundation is learning: understanding how children learn, how to increase creativity, adapt for learning styles, and develop critical thinking.
We believe the Nancy Larson® Science programs are the best homeschool curricula available for children 5–12. The programs provide both solid science content and reading strategies, with engaging activities. That’s the basis for developing other curricula areas. Why should each subject be isolated and separate? Our lives and world are integrated. We multi-task our learning and experiences everyday. So, we’ve created integrated learning for each science lesson.
Great ideas bloom everywhere. We’d like to know what you’ve done. It’s all about sharing. Give someone a flower, they feel good. Give someone a great idea, and their children will bloom! We want to increase Blooming Scientists everywhere.
The architects of this community are homeschool parents who use Nancy Larson® Science programs. We want to build this community for you and with you. We invite your questions and your ideas. So please let us know how we can help your “blooming scientists.”
