Online Resources for Teaching Middle School Science

Thank you for joining me on Day 5 of my 5-day series "Super Easy Ways to Teach Middle School Science." 

If the idea of teaching middle school science intimidates you, then you'll certainly want to take advantage of online resources.

As I mentioned on Day 1 in this series, Supercharged Science is my favorite online resource, but there are others.

Pinterest Flips and Flops - Doctor Who Style

See these tries at recreating Doctor Who recipes for a party. Some were flips and some where flops.

Recently I threw a Doctor Who party for my 11-year-old daughter, Lorelai. This was her 5th grade graduation party. 

Although I'm not one to try Pinterest finds, I do occasionally try a recipe. Since this party was a huge deal, I decided to participate in the Pinterest Flips and Flops

I found a few Doctor Who party ideas. 

Flip #1: Some went well, like this pin for making 'Fish fingers and custard'.

OK, so maybe not as pretty because I was in a rush, but they were delicious. By the end of the party, they were gone. That's a definite FLIP!

How Homeschool Groups and Co-ops Can Help You Teach Science

Learn how homeschool groups and co-ops can make it easier to teach science to your middle school student.

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.
