Blow things up as much as possible. LOL. I would start with chemistry. There are some great helps out there. We had a blast with it. My youngest loved calling salt the two bad boys. Last year we started an element collection. There is a great periodic table coloring book. Any areas they are interested in?

No, I am just tomgirl with two boys that grew up on mythbusters. LOL. Real science odyssey has a great curriculum options. I highly recommend Chinese lanterns. Great for weather study and they are pretty cheap. They are neat to watch. The great thing about chemistry is you can use it for any science study. Solar system is a great idea. Lots of grear options.

I'm not much help.  I piece together my own science curriculum. I have the boys choose topics they want to cover and I pull together the materials necessary to do them.  Mine are young, so I know I'll have the time to cover all of the disciplines before they concentrate in high school.

Yeah, that would be hard.  Do you have a good library nearby?

They have junior notebooks. I completely recommend doing the notebook journals. The junior one is for say k-2 unless they are advanced readers and writers.

It had coloring pages, spots to write stuff you learn, other games and activities and crafts to make and place in your book.

We are doing anatomy with them this year. Sixth, fourth, and kindy. Kindy takes from it what she does and ill repeat it later with her and my youngest when he is ready in a few years.
