Independent Science Class

I love independent learning. It's often the most effective way for a child to learn. I pulled this book off of the shelf and left it on the living room table the other day, without saying a word about it. Since then, it has almost always been in one or more children's hands. What a sneaky way to "teach" science!

I thought I had almost all of David Macaulay's books (just bought one from another homeschool mom on Friday, as a matter of fact). However, for this blog post I pulled up his Wiki and found that he has written many more than I have collected. I will certainly be keeping an eye out for "The Way We Work" among others. We love anatomy and I am positive that this book will be well worth finding.


  1. Hadn't heard of him. Thank you!!

  2. We love that book! My boys have been devouring it again the past week. I'll have to look for the How We Work book, didn't know that one.


I love comments! Please feel free to leave kind words, new ideas, requests for recipes, even gentle criticism if needed in the spirit of Proverbs 16:24.

"Pleasant words are as an honeycomb, sweet to the soul, and health to the bones."
