Home Science Tools

What's Schoolin'?

I will be teaching Physical Science at a local homeschool enrichment program this year to middle schoolers.  The text we're using is Apologia's Exploring Creation with Physical Science I am really jazzed about it.  This will probably be the easiest class I've ever taught because it's planned out and I'll be following a curriculum... okay, so I'm already tweaking the first lesson but then I'll follow the book... maybe?

I was prepping and listing out the materials I would need for the first class' experiments.  After figuring out the items I would need to gather or the program would need to buy I got a wonderful surprise.  Last year they had invested in the Home Science Tools box for Physical Science. I've seen them online through the years but they were too pricey for me.  I would just fumble through our Science courses gathering as we went.  That has worked out fine, actually, it just took some extra planning and letting go of some activities when I couldn't get the materials.  However... Now that I've seen how helpful it is $35 seems fair.

It was so nice to have the copper wire, 9-V battery, etc that I need for Thursday right there waiting for me in the box :).

This is the link when I did a search on their site for "Montessori Kit":

I have never used this type of coupon, but in case anyone can use them:

Here is a blurb about them at HSLDA
