Science Printables and Resources
In science, I offer free schedules for some of Apologia's science books. You will also find a few printable files such as nature journal files and lab book forms.
I haven't worked on this page in a while; the other parts of DY have been keeping me busy.

This is a folded nature journal. It asks questions such as, "What do you see?". Each "field trip" has a two page spread. The left side is for written observations and the right side has a place for a drawing or gathered samples. At the bottom of the right side page is a place to take note of the moon phase.

Homeschooling science can be a great adventure. I recommend using a hands-on and notebooking style for science.
Our first 8 years included no full set curriculum, only lots of books by different publishers including curriculum publishers. The first full curricula that my children used are the science books which are published by Apologia's Ministries and that is why I offer science schedules for those books.
Primarily, most of my children's years of science included keeping a nature journal and learning about science through stories, first hand observations, and from many different types of books.
