Science is such an important subject since it lays the groundwork for so many career choices. Luckily, it’s also the easiest subject to have fun with! My kids will pick an experiment over a spelling test or math facts flash card session any day. Observing how things work and intereact is exciting.

Below are great deals and freebies to help stimulate your children’s minds this school year. These resources are perfect for homeschoolers to add to their curriculum, but they are also great for parents who want to supplement the education their children recieve in school (e.g. for children who are either struggling and need more exposure or who are advanced and bored). Some of these science resources also make creative and unique kid party activities.

Check out these science experiments, science freebies, and science books that will make back-to-school fun for everyone.
