Science girls

We hare a big fan of Charlotte Mason's "living books" approach here, but there is a place for textbooks, like in science. I always enjoyed science particularity Biology and Biochemistry. Physics, on the other hand, is a whole different story.

One thing about knowing what motivates your kids curiosity is that you don't have to limit their learning experiences restricted to a grade/age related information. When they are willing and ready to learn, little learners are like sponges, soaking all the information available to them. No need to worry about if the information is "too advance", teach them the correct information, ask them questions and see how much they have grasped. You might be surprised on how much they have retained, analysed and understood.
