Biology Activities for Home School & Classroom - P2
Below is our continuing collection of family science explorations, all great FREE materials for home school or classroom use, as well as for parents interested in doing science with their children outside of school, such as science fair projects.
Kids are natural born scientists, full of curiosity! Exposing children to fun science, at a young age, will help foster a life-long love of learning. Here's our collection of useful links to great science resources perfect for home study.
This is the main page for our explorations of microscopic, freshwater life. Here you will find a growing photographic guide, pond life coloring page, word search and links to some excellent web resources on this topic. Check back frequently, as we will be continually developing the information on this page.
This Home School Science Page of the Science Prof Online website will be continually growing, as we carry out and document new experiments. So check back frequently, or follow us on Facebook or on Twitter @ScienceProfSPO to be notified when new materials are added.

"Sit down before fact as a little child, be prepared to give up every conceived notion, follow humbly wherever and whatever abysses nature leads, or you will learn nothing."
- Thomas Huxley (1825-95)
