Science Should Not Be A Book

Elijah got this wonderful science kit from Tito Jojo, Edric’s uncle. It is exactly what he wanted because he is into the mechanics of design. He likes gears and designing things that power themselves. A few days ago he built solar powered machines. Edan got into it, too. I have said this before but I will say it again…I am so thankful for the flexibility that homeschooling gives the kids to experiment, design, build. We have a science curriculum that we are following, but like other subjects that we cover, learning does not have to be confined to what’s going on in the books. If my kids have a strong interest that is healthy, Edric and I find ways to encourage and fuel it.
