Home School Science
Teaching Made Easy

I'm going to share with you the best of our free homeschooling curriculum for home school science.

Our free homeschool curriculum goes all the way from preschool on up through high school.

It's been tried and tested on my homeschool children William and Catherine.

They both love science  - as you can see in the photo! -  and William is now at Oxford University studying Chemistry.

Who could ask for more?

You'll see that your role is not to answer questions so much as to encourage wonder.

It is curiosity which is the mark of a true scientist.

And that's what makes homeschool the best place to learn.

Teaching Homeschool Science

Unfortunately, science can be one of those areas which really throw you when you come to think about homeschooling.

Common homeschooling worries:

  • Do I really know enough to teach science?
  • Will I need specialized equipment?
  • How am I going to cover the curriculum?

Panic not.  We've all been there.

And there's something you need to know, a little secret which I'm happy to share.

All those science curricula educationalists are so keen on churning out – full of long words and important-sounding principles which must be absorbed and tested – they all ignore the simplest and most important truth.

Your primary task – whatever the age of your child – is to use home school science to wake up, encourage and stimulate your child's natural interest and curiosity about the world.

Everything else, all scientific knowledge, follows from that.

This Chemistry set is one of the main reasons my son is now studying Chemistry at Oxford University.

The set is chock full of exciting experiments with a detailed instruction book.  The experiments are real ones with real chemicals - by which we mean - watch out! The set pushes the boundaries of Health and Safety regulations and you need to make sure your child knows what they are doing.

It is a very expensive but it outclasses any other sets we have seen - we have lots of dead sets gifted to us in the loft with an exciting box cover but containing very little of use - just a few not very interesting chemicals, test tubes, and a small burner and that's about it.

Manufacturer recommended age: 12 - 15 years; William started age 12 and carried on using it until age 16.  He's still got it in his bedroom!

N.B. This is an expensive set.  You will pay exactly the same price if you purchase through my affiliate link, but I will get a small commission.  I only recommend resources I know are useful for homeschooling.

You can see my children using the CHEM C3000 set in the photo at the top of the page.
