How to Choose the Best Science and Reading Materials
Selecting instructional materials for science and reading that build on a child's natural wonder, while supplementing a good academic program, requires careful consideration.  The best materials will foster a feeling of discovery in the child, but at the same time, they will include instruction that expands on the child's basic understanding of the world.

Scientists solve problems in much the same way that you do - through making observations, asking questions, taking a guess, and experimenting so that eventually they might come to a conclusion that can be shared with others.
 
An Innovative Resource for the Teaching of Human Anatomy and Physiology
What is one of the most intriguing, awe-inspiring subjects we can teach our children? Science! Whether we're sitting in a lawn chair and looking up at the stars, learning about cool and sometimes crazy chemical reactions, whether we're bending light, or learning about one of the greatest creations of all time – the human body – science can, and should be fun. Sometimes we have the materials for study at hand... or at least obtainable at the store. Other times, as with the human body and its intricacies, we have technology, and the expertise and diligent work of medical illustrators, doctors and trained scientists to help us in our teaching endeavors
 
Homeschool Science Academy
Science education in the 6th – 12th grade years for a college-bound student requires careful consideration. As parents, we want to choose a direction that will foster a feeling of discovery in our child, develop critical thinking and reasoning skills, and one that will coincide with the values and belief system that we hold. That's why Greg Landry provides homeschooling students with free 45 minute online science seminars, one and two semester online science classes, and weekend / week-long anatomy and physiology camps, all taught from a Christian worldview.
 
Science is not a book; it's a mess!
Science – it's all around us! Every day we interact with weather, plants, bugs, food, animals and our own bodies. Has your child ever wondered how something works? That's science! My daughter asked me just yesterday how turning the steering wheel in a car can make the car change directions. We are born into this world naturally curious, questioning our environment and how things work.
