Homeschool Science Experiments for Kids You Can Do At Home

Homeschool science experiments can be one of the best ways for children to learn different parts of science.

When I’m homeschooling my son, a lot of our science curriculum revolves around doing experiments and other hands-on projects. Actually, most of our learning comes from various different hands-on activities or educational YouTube videos. Each shows them how to do things differently making them both valuable.

That’s simply because that is the way he retains information better. He learns so much better by actually doing the things himself vs just reading through the material. We even subscribe to a few educational monthly boxes that involve tinkering projects and other things.

Plus, experiments are always fun!

Whether you’re making a volcano that explodes or watching to see the different stages that happen, it’s interesting to watch.
