Our homeschool science curriculum is a little disjointed, although, it is one of our favorite days. The reason we love it so much (despite it actually being our least favorite subject) is because we do a little bit of everything. Not only do we read science books, but we also watch lots of youtube videos, take online classes, watch science documentaries and of course do our workbooks.
