Homeschool Science Tips For Moms Who Hate Teaching It!

Like What You See? Tell Your Friends!

I have never hidden the fact that I dislike teaching science, I find the subject too difficult, too boring, and too messy! But I love math, so we can’t have everything! I know I am not alone!

No, I am not that cool mom who is going to dissect a frog in the kitchen.

No, I am not that mom who is going to create a chemical explosion in my garage!

I just can’t stand the mess, and nor do I have the patience!

I wish I did, and I am secretly jealous of those moms that do. But I am not one of them!

But worry not, I have some great homeschool science tips for moms like us!

Science Tips for Homeschool Moms

My number 1 science tip for any homeschool mom is to outsource, outsource, outsource!

It’s the only way! There are several ways to outsource science and I am going to share with you my top 4.

Online science membership

I have recently discovered that you can get a monthly online science subscription for every class you could possibly need in science. Greg Landry’s homeschool science for grades 4-12 is the only way!

Homeschool science doesn’t need to be hard or dreaded when you can outsource it to College Prep Science.

Greg Landry’s Homeschool Science Membership is a monthly online science membership. This means you pay a decreasing monthly fee and the whole family can benefit. There are courses from grade 4 all the way through to grade 12. The longer you subscribe the cheaper the access gets, but also you can cancel at any time. You are not tied in.

I also love the fact that they offer science freebies.

Science Museums

Despite my lack of enjoyment in teaching science, I actually love going to science museums. The kids (and us adults) get to play and push buttons, and it is really fun. This is a picture of my son at our local science museum last year.

This is an absolutely great way to bring science into your homeschool, well actually out of your homeschool but you know what I mean!

Science Coops

We don’t have many secular homeschool coops where we live, however, we have found a wonderful science homeschool group that my son attends weekly. It is the only subject, other than piano that we currently outsource.

Science Subscription Boxes

I highly recommend getting science delivered to your door. It comes with everything you need for the experiments, and the mess can be contained!
