December 28, 2007, Newsletter Issue #208: Homeschool Science in the Kitchen

Tip of the Week

If the idea of turning your kitchen into a chemistry lab sounds unappealing, try remembering that each time you cook a meal, principles of chemistry are being utilized. So, break out the Pyrex and measuring spoons and let the experiments begin.

Did you know that all it takes to make a volcano is some baking soda and vinegar? What other concoctions can you test? With a little adventurous spirit and some common sense, its easy and fun to teach science in the kitchen.

Thanks so much for reading the the Homeschool Tips Newsletter.

The new 2006-2007 Sonlight catalog is hot off the presses! In addition to new educational resources, we've also made some significant improvements to our curriculum, such as expanded flexibility in Reader choices for Levels K through 2.

The catalog also provides several articles with helpful homeschool tips. For example, check out the "Top Ten Goals" article (pp. 146-147) which can help you think through your personal philosophy when it comes to homeschooling. And "Why we use certain books that some homeschoolers won't touch" (pp. 144-145), that gets into some pretty important issues about the content of books. And you won’t want to miss “27 Reasons NOT to Buy Sonlight”—a perennial favorite (beginning on page 148).
