As a homeschool momma, I love all the free resources I can find. Mystery Science gave us a year subscription for free. Mystery Science is used in 50% of elementary schools. They took 150 of the most asked questions to teachers by students ages 5-10 and turned them into science open and go lessons.
We currently use it as a supplemental source of learning for my daughter and not primary. They send me cute emails of videos and projects on Sundays, so I plan it into her week. I find she enjoys the videos because it’s a nice way to break up bookwork during the week and something different than her hands-on science experiments. I wanted to share an extension project that was offered by them because the skull is a perfect symbol of Halloween. It’s amazing how kids can be entertained by a simple piece of paper.
(She was able to use scissors and tape, so she was happy. Science and Art all together. What’s better than that?)
