Thank you for joining me on Day 4 of my 5-day series "Super Easy Ways to Teach Middle School Science."
Let's talk about homeschool groups and co-ops. If you can find homeschool groups in your area, I highly recommend it. I did not have this luxury 15 years ago. Life would have been easier had I not been the only homeschooler in the area. These days, we are practically overrun with homeschool groups as it has become a 'norm' where I live.
How can homeschool groups and co-ops help you teach science?Being a part of a homeschool group means someone (even you) will be arranging field trips. Lots of field trips. Sure you'll go to fun things like a children's museum or a local splash pad, but you'll also go to historical places and places that offer an education on topics related to science.
A co-op, on the other hand, offers actual classes conducted by other parents in the group. These classes are very much like any other educational class. The only difference is a parent is teaching it. If the co-op is well-organized, there will certainly be science classes offered.
