Does anyone do science as a family (regardless of grade/age)?
Do you, Sonya, have anything outlined for covering specific science areas (as examples: astronomy, botany, physics, biology, chemisty, electricity, etc..) *on a rotating basis* (like you do for history)? I really think I'd prefer to do as much as possible as a family (to ease the load), but I'd like to make sure we cover what is necessary by grade 12. Is this possible/recommended (rotating topics)? Anyone else have any suggestions on rotation?
Right now, my two oldest are 4th and 2nd so they are working on a CM-friendly program on their own (just to let them dabble in science) and I'm planning to start an in-depth nutrition study for the whole family. (We're dealing with necessary diet issues and rather than take on the huge task of learning alot on my own to better feed my family according to special needs, I thought we could all learn together, making them more aware of why mom might be saying no to this or that. We'll all benefit from it.) Anyone have any resource suggestions for our nutrition study - outling carbs, proteins, etc.., and what exactly each food provides (i.e. milk provides calcium and is a good source of protein). I'm really excited about this.
Thanks for reading - and thank's in advance to those who might feel inclined to share. ;)
