Science Extras..

I've shared a few of the projects Morgan has worked on that go along with his Sonlight F science. I've also been asked a few times over where the ideas have come from. I purchased Easy Make & Learn Projects: Human Body from Scholastic a few years ago in one of their $1 sales. It's been the perfect addition to what we've been learning this year & I'm really glad I had the book on hand. Here's the thing though, Scholastic is currently having one of their amazing $1 sales on all their ebooks! This is perfect as an ebook because the whole book is full of reproducible!

You can find the product here if you're interested. This book can be used as a standalone as there are ideas in it to tell you how to teach with the little items you can create in there. We just happen to be doing a biology course with Morgan this year which is why I've chosen to add it to his studies.

While looking through the books this morning at Scholastic I also spotted this awesome looking book entitled The Body Book. It has differing projects then the one above & allows your student to make a model of their own body, layer upon layer. For a dollar I figure we can't go too wrong. Morgan was pretty excited when I showed it to him & explained it, so we'll see how it goes.

You can find the product link for it here if you're interested. I can't vouch for how good or bad this book is as we haven't used it yet, but it looks amazing! You can preview the books there if you want by clicking on the word More under each cover on the Scholastic website. Wait for it to fully load & then you can scroll down to check out the entire book. It looks liks this book might also have notes for teaching with it as it is, but again this will make a nice companion to Morgan's studies this year. Can't wait to give it a go!

And in case you're wondering, the email I received from Scholastic this morning said their sale was good for 5 days, & the $1 applied to all of their ebooks. We've picked up a few others that we'll be using later, including another science based reproducible for Jayden for next year, & a couple of fun science experiment books for the summer. Maybe you'll find something fun too!
