    Science Experiments

    Hi Everyone, I was wondering if anyone has any ideas/experience etc. with science experiments. I want to do more hands on science with my boys (ages 5, 11, &13) but I have no idea where to get ideas, supplies. I thought about just going to Walmart and looking around for things I can use, however I really do not have a whole lot of "free" time to spend looking. I've done some looking online but the various "kits" seem way too expensive and flimsy. We're starting into our 3rd week of classes and I'm bored with the book work. I want to encourage their interest in and fascination for all science offers but i'm struggling to put it together. Thanking you for taking time to help.
  18. I've come to realize I really don't like teaching two different science programs to my older kids. Next year, my oldest child will be in 9th grade and my middle child will be in 6th. Can anyone recommend a curriculum that would suit both kids with options for a more in-depth (high school level) course of study for the 9th grader and still cover a decent amount of material for the 6th grader? Thanks in advance for your help!

    Fertilized Chicken Eggs

    I have 18 breeds of chickens and can supply fertilized eggs to those who live in the Columbia area. All you need is an incubator. If you are interested in hatching some chicks as part of a life cycle lesson, let me know. I can't guarantee any one particular breed, but I can supply a rainbow of differently colored eggs. You can reply here or email me at frankhdgs@gmail.com .
  20. hi all - Is anyone attending the Roper Mountain Science Center Home School Day May 23rd? I didn't see it in the CH list of events so thought I would ask. I'm thinking of taking my son (7) and this would be our first "home school event" so thought it would be nice to meet others. Here's more info: www.ropermountain.org/home-school-discovery-day May 23 9a-1:30p thanks! Stephanie
  21. Does anyone know where to purchase science lab materials such as horseshoe magnet, bar magnets, woolen clothe, glass rod, tiny light bulbs, and bulb holder, brass fasteners. I'm using several science picture books with labs. I'm having trouble cruising around town looking for all this lab equipment. Home Depot and Lowes are the most cost effective, but I loose a lot of time in those big stores with so much inventory, yet they don't have a lot of what I need. The smaller family run hardware stores are quite expensive though they have the harder to find items. Online purchasing is a drag with $40 every time after shipping and tax! Any help is appreciated....I hope there is a better way to collect these items. My boys are little and don't get excited over textbooks so these labs with follow up with internet pictures or a dvd keep them homeschooling. Please help. Thanks so much! Happy Summer!! :-D

    Local 4-H

    My daughter is involved in 4-H and the chicken eggs she's been incubating were candled today. 21 out of 24 eggs are still hanging in there. Usually only about 50% hatch, so this just proves to her that she's going to be a great mom! If anyone lives in the Lancaster/York/Indian Land areas and would like to be involved in the local 4-H club, the director would love for more homeschoolers to join. They have all kinds of projects going. My daughter is involved with chickens (we never buy eggs anymore and supply all our family and friends) and the photography club. Here's the website: http://www.clemson.edu/extension/county/lancaster/programs/4h/ And here's the contact info: Steve Hucks, 4-H Coordinator, chucks@clemson.edu 803-283-3302 ext. 111 Warmly, Dianna
