Hands on Science: States of Matter, Robots, and a Cure for Cancer

There is one subject I don’t use a text book for in my homeschooling curriculum and that’s Science. Why? Well, because doing teaches much more than reading ever could. This month, we made snow, watched gators grow, and played with beads all in the name […]
