HS Science links

This in NO way is a comprehensive list. I’m not a scientist, but a curious home educating mother.353px-Monarch_Butterfly_Cocoon_6708

These are some of the what-I-think-interesting sites that I’ve stumbled on in my 10 years of homeschooling.

Science:

How Stuff Works – also http://science.howstuffworks.com/

Science from the Beeb – 4-11 yo
+ Teacher resources – 9-10 yo
Teacher’s (or home educating parents’) resources : scienceclips

Bitesize
+ teachers : 3 pages of lesson plans and worksheets

3D Papercraft – see the Science section
