Homeschool Science in Early Elementary (K-2): Video Post

How do I start teaching science to my kids?  This is a very different answer if your kids are K-2 than if they are a bit older.  Here are some of the science topics you might want to consider if your kids are in early elementary. I put together a video of some of the activities we did when the kids were in early elementary.

Some of these activities my youngest was probably in preschool, but my older kids were in early elementary.  You can pick and choose what works for your kids and move into more complex topics from there!  I hope you enjoy what I hope to be a series of Minute videos! :)  ~Liesl

Links to the activities and printables you see in our Minute 1 video are below.
