So I thought I’d finally put my biology degree in use and you’ll start seeing more printable science worksheets for kids from me which is my first love followed by math.
My son is a huge worksheet fan so I’m working on our biology unit for next year while we study earth science this year.
I think bringing in a visual component and letting your child color in order to label can really help those visual learners.
Worksheets alone can’t teach everything about science, you have to pair them with hands-on activities and science experiments which is what makes science fun.
Here are some of my favorite science books, every household should have an encyclopedia for reference and experiment books, in my opinion.
