Hi! It’s Tuesday, June 22, 2010 and time for Science at ClickSchooling!
The Lab of Mr. Q
Age Range: 8-13 (approximately, and fun for all!)
A Maryland ClickScholar turned me on to The Lab of Mr. Q. I find it hard to resist a science teacher who sums up the branches of science like this:
“If it stinks, it’s chemistry. If it’s slimy, it’s biology. And if it doesn’t work, it’s physics.”
Mr. Q is an 8th grade science teacher who moonlighted as a science tutor for homeschoolers. In fact, he developed a series of science books with homeschoolers in mind that he sells at this website. But you don’t have to buy a thing to access some free science goodies at his website.
For example, when you get to the site, you’ll be greeted by an array of possibilities. My advice is to click on “The Blog of Mr. Q“. There you can get free, fun science experiments that you can do at home such as:
- How To Teach Science During Dessert… With Cookies
- How To Teach Science During Dessert… With Strawberries
- How To Teach Science During Dessert… With Ice Cream
- Bring On the Spice: How To Teach Science With Chile Peppers
- Bring On The Spice: How To Teach Science With Mustards
Simply click on any one to read the article and find out how to conduct the experiment.
If you like these, you’ll want to sign up to receive for free by email “Mr. Q’s Monthly Lab Notes” – a colorful, engaging newsletter filled with experiments and science news. You can access the archives of over 25 previous newsletters for free too!
Want more? As I mentioned, Mr. Q has a series of science text books for sale on the following topics:
- Life Science
- Earth Science
- Physical Science
However, to get you hooked on his products, you can download the entire Elementary Life Science Book for FREE! It includes a teacher’s manual and student textbook with experiments, worksheets, tests and answer keys.
Not only that, but you can also download the first chapter of each of his other books for free as well. Of course, Mr. Q hopes you’ll buy something and gladly accepts donations to help him in his quest to share science with your family.
