Homeschooling Online – Together At Home!

A Strong Science Foundation

There’s a new science home school curriculum for the littlest students, K-2nd. Actually, it’s pretty great for PreK and good for some 3rd graders too.  It’s all digitally delivered and very interactive and animated. It also has all the info for great hands-on experiments using very simple materials.

Science4Us Science Activities

The Science4Us curriculum is a complete, standards-based, core science curriculum that delivers digital science experiences to early elementary students. Science4Us provides basic science knowledge and skills in a way that truly engages the learner and will lead more students to reach for the STEM-related jobs and industries of the future.

The mission of Science4Us is to provide a solid foundation of fundamental science concepts for students in their formative years, on which a deep understanding and interest in science can be built. The Science4Us curriculum includes  training for homeschool teachers, embedded and on-demands.

Science Songs for Kindergarten Students

I’ve always thought that science songs are a great way to learn. I was thinking about this since I was just listening to the Science4Us song about Simple Machines for early elementary students.

Other Science Songs that I really like are on the LearningGames website:

The Science4Us people explain it this way:

Students are fascinated with tools and machines. In the Simple Machines module, students see examples of how simple machines can make work easier by reducing the force needed to move an object over a distance.

Then, students use interactive activities to experiment with these simple machines: lever, pulley, wheel and axle, wedge, screw, and inclined plane. Hands-on activities are also available to give students actual experience with simple machines. By the end of this module, students will know just how to decrease the amount of force needed to move an object!
