Really? (I know you are thinking that as you begin to look at this post)

Can I really get 10 sciences classes for my homeschooling family for under $10?

Yes!

I found a treasure trove of fantastic science courses for homeschooling families, many more than 10 actually but here are my favorites…

1. Small World Sensory Science (Preschool)

“One of the ways preschoolers learn is by touching, feeling, doing, and exploring. That is what Small World Sensory Science is designed to help them do. Through twelve lessons, they will explore the farm, the pond, the ocean, wind, construction, and much more. Because sensory activities can sometimes be messy, there is a lesson on helping to keep things tidy, too!”

2. Having Fun with Kindergarten Science (Kindergarten)

“Get ready to go on a journey of exploration with your kindergartener! Through twenty-two engaging lessons and hands-on activities and experiments, they will have a chance to learn what a scientist does as well as learn about the world around them, including living and non-living things, life cycles, plants and animals, human senses, the weather, water, seasons, light, shadow, temperature, colors, and more.”

3. A World of Animals (elementary)

“From hamsters to hammerheads, this class takes elementary students on an engaging adventure through the world of animals. They’ll learn how these animals are classified, what they like to eat, whether or not they are endangered, and how to care for the animals that are possible pets.” –And, this course uses the access you get to the online World Book encyclopedia content as a member of SchoolhouseTeachers.com! —

4. Science Experiments with Jason Lindsey (elementary)

“Hello! This is Jason Lindsey—aka “Mr. Science”—with Hooked on Science. Are you looking for a way to get your kids excited about science? If so, each week, I will show you how you can use a few items from around the house to not only get your kids excited about science, but also to teach basic science concepts. My wife and I homeschool our four kids and can tell you these experiments have helped spark a love for science. The goal of these hands-on lessons is to inspire kids to be inquisitive about the world around them and to develop a long-term interest in science.”

5. Everyday Astronomy (elementary)

“Join “Professor Light” as she takes you through the wonders of astronomy. Everyday Astronomy introduces students to all of the planets (including Pluto!) and other space phenomena. There are science projects, assignments, short stories, and even appetizing astronomy recipes.”

6. Geology (elementary, middle, and high school)

“Unit 1: Rocks and Minerals begins with a study of the Creation and builds to include rock-forming minerals, identifying rocks by their minerals, types of rocks, and minerals and their families. Each class includes a worksheet and answer key, and the course ends with a comprehensive exam. Unit 2: The Geology of Our National Parks begins with a study of Yellowstone National Park, the first National Park that was established in the United States. Mr. Nurre helps students to see the connection between the Genesis account of Creation and the evidence that is found in Yellowstone National Park that supports the Biblical view. He moves on, in future lessons, to cover more than a dozen additional parks. Each class includes a worksheet and answer key, and the course ends with a comprehensive exam.” — This is one of those great courses that is designed for a wide range of ages (from upper elementary through high school) so you could have a pile of your kids taking the course all at once! —

7. Botany (middle and high school)

“Take an in-depth look at plants in just 16 weeks. Instructor Julie Polanco proves that Botany is not boring. With many fun experiments and activities, Julie begins her course with a discussion of why it is important to study plants, and students are introduced to world-renowned botanists who have made important contributions to science and society such as John Bartram, Gregor Mendel, and George Washington Carver. Three weeks are spent looking at soil and the minerals contained within it. The function of roots, leaves, and stems, as well as plant respiration and circulation, is discussed. Students will learn about the importance of light and the process of photosynthesis. They will also learn how to tell the difference between deciduous trees and gymnosperms, find out how plants know when to get ready for winter, and why some trees don’t lose their leaves. A few weeks are spent looking at plant defenses, plants as medicine, and flowers as food. Students will begin to understand why God designed plants the way He did and what role they play in our world.”

8. Marine Biology (middle and high school)

“Marine Biology introduces students to the diverse and incredible world of marine life through videos, slideshows, research projects, online resources, and downloadable materials. From the very small to the very large, students meet creatures that boggle the mind and defy imagination. “

9. Biology (8th grade & high school)

“Especially for SchoolhouseTeachers.com, Ruth Sundeen, a homeschooling mom and co-op teacher with a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology, presents a well-rounded, full-credit biology course from a special creation standpoint. Biology is a basic high school science course, and this Biology class presents a study of life that helps to focus the student’s attention on the Great Designer who gave us all life to study and enjoy. It is a solid foundational class that is best studied beginning with the first lesson and following through in the order of the lessons, as they build on each other, for a fuller understanding of the subject. “

10. Chemistry (middle school)

“Chemistry: All Things Matter is a 12-week course that will help middle school students learn the important fact that all things are made of matter. Then they will discover how matter exists and changes. Using this basic understanding, the student will advance in learning to determine the states of matter, the physical reactions matter goes through, and how different types of matter combine (or do not combine) in everyday life. Vocabulary, reviews, and an exam are included, along with experiments which should be overseen by a parent. Chemistry: All Things Matter is a perfect fundamental science course to give your student a basic background and prepare them for the more difficult science courses to come in their education.”

– I know I said 10 courses, but these 2 advanced high school courses are too great to leave out!

(adding the high school content to your membership adds an additional $1/month to the price)

Bonus Course: Physics (high school)

“This course is a non-AP level physics course. If students plan on attending college, regardless of intended major, it will be adequate preparation and a complete course for a high school student; however, the math will not be quite as intense. A knowledge of math through Algebra 2 or trigonometry is helpful for taking this course, and having a basic physical science background in topics such as the scientific process, states of matter, and basic atomic structure before taking this course is recommended.”

Bonus Course: Advanced Chemistry (high school)

“This advanced chemistry course covers all the basic topics of general chemistry. As an advanced course, it is suitable for grades 11-12 and would be best appreciated by a student who has already had a basic introduction to chemistry. This course includes approximately 25 hours of video instruction, supplemental readings, extensive practice exercises, and answer keys. “
