6. Finish the unit with a family-fun night based on the topic. Kids need to show what they've learned.
If we are to raise lifelong learners and problem-solvers, we need to teach our children how to learn, we need to cultivate the desire to learn, and we need to provide a framework for what to learn. Remember, too, facts are much easier to learn when you're having fun!
Curriculum Ideas -- Want to develop your own science course? Check out Science Scope for a very detailed scope and sequence - the perfect tool for planning.
Want the fun but not the work? The Scientist's Apprentice (elementary grades) by Hilary Welliver makes it easy to teach science. Topics covered are: Oceanography, Astronomy, Anatomy, and Earth Science. Includes lesson plans, reproducibles, activities, experiments, even songs and crafts. Great for teaching multi-grade levels together.
Next year look for our brand new book: Classical Kids Explore Biology!
