My friend Andrea is a fellow homeschooler who teaches our children along with another family's children a Science class every Tuesday at one.  I love her teaching style because instead of solely instructing, she lets them do activities where they get to explore and get excited about science.  Yesterday they went for a nature walk, picking up anything they wanted to look at under a microscope.  After studying whatever objects they found they drew what they saw.  Some of the things they looked at Andrea had on hand (I don't think we have any racoon fur around here.) luke-science
