Homeschooling middle school science. The middle school years can be a challenge. It can also be a lot of fun! These are the years when you should still be able to eeek out a little bit of cuddle time – as long as you don’t tell anyone. Your pre-teen and young teen is beginning to get his legs. It’s time for some of his own decisions to come into play. It’s time for them to practice newly found independence in a safely monitored environment.
But, they aren’t too old to play. We still need field trips and fun science projects. We enjoy plenty of exploring. We enjoy field trips that enrich learning. I want to make the most of the time I have left at home with my boys. It’s also time to make sure they are prepared to take on more responsibility for high school.
