6. Finish the unit with a family-fun night based on the topic. Kids need to show what they've learned.

 

Summary


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!

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.
