Science Resources Giveaway {3 winners!}

Welcome to Day 2 of Life of a Homeschool Mom’s 24-Day Back to Homeschool Giveaway Extravaganza!! Today’s giveaway is sponsored by and The Learning Hypothesis will have THREE winners. Check it out…

Science can be a challenge to teach.

It always seems like we go into science instruction with the best of intentions, but it can easily become the subject that gets pushed to the side. It’s so unfortunate because children are ‘naturally’ scientists! My 3-year old will announce, “It’s science time!” and race to the school table. My kids and I have enjoyed building bridges, playing with cells, and exploring chemistry.

Nurturing kids’ scientific curiosity with highly engaging activities, projects and demonstrations is what every teacher and homeschooler would like to aim for. It can be overwhelming to find the perfect match and even the best curriculum needs some supplementation. Plus the cost of individual supplements can get pricey.

That is why I have spent my time as a homeschooler and previously as a science educator in the public school and college setting looking for the best ways to teach and optimize learning. I want to be the science teacher that I wish I had, what about you?

The process of scientific learning and thinking begins as soon as kids are born. Even an infant is making sense of his world by exploring the objects, and materials that surround him or her. These explorations naturally lead to more questions and more explorations.

Science Curriculum Can Get Overwhelming.

As a homeschooling mom and professional scientist, I know the challenges of finding a curriculum that will provide the best learning opportunities for my kids. I try to find teaching and learning resources with easy science experiments to keep kids’ interest while exposing them to difficult material in a very engaging way.

The reality is that some of us excel at teaching spelling or reading, but many of us feel intimidated when it comes to science. My goal is to help you teach amazing science lessons with less time and money. I want to support you in becoming the hands-on homeschooler that you have always wanted to be.

If you are looking for experiments and activities, The Lab Bench is a great starting point.

The Lab Bench is a 25-project activity book (in pdf) ideal for anyone that wants to encourage young scientists.

The activities include information to make your life easier:

  • background information
  • demonstration activities
  • video links
  • extension activities
  • answers to common questions
  • & more.

The focus of this book is to create simple science experiments that are easy to execute, but that help kids understand. These science projects for kids let them explore science and ignite their passion.

But in all honesty, some of us need more support and/or a little extra reinforcement. Do you want to save time and money, but still have engaging lessons with resources that will enrich your child’s education?

If you want to be the science teacher you wish you had, you need The Science Circle.

The Science Circle is the ultimate science resource for teachers & homeschoolers, this site offers a huge range of planning tips, activities and ideas for educators. Subscribe to the Science Circle site and immediately receive a fantastic selection of core resources from science lesson plans to projects and worksheets, and then receive monthly emails to update you on the newest available downloads.

    1. I agree! I would love these resources

  2. Fun give away. I find science hard to organize. I try experiments, but can’t always answer all of their questions.

  3. Love this giveaway! So fun! I would love any of these prizes! I suppose the preferred prize would be the year of science circle and the lab bench. I can’t wait to see what you have to give away from sonlight!

  4. I had such a hard time last year trying to do labs, etc for science. This would be amazing!

  5. My children ADORE science of all disciplines. I am always on the look out for resources to help me teach them. The Science Circle looks brilliant! Having Interactive notebooks, presentations AND experiments and activities all in one place for each lesson would free up so much more time to actually DO science, instead of just planning for it!

  6. Well, I would like the grand prize. 🙂 Both prizes look great. My nine year old loves to do experiments.

  7. Thank you so much for doing these giveaways! What a blessing to the winners!

  8. I would like to win this grand prize, but all of it looks amazing. I would use this with my very advanced grandson to enrich his life. In his words, “School makes me crazy” and he needs a LOT of enrichment to cope. He loves his science.

  9. What a great giveaway! I’m always looking for ways to engage my three boys. They balk at anything that even resembles school work, so I have to be creative.

  10. Wow! These look like great resources!

  11. Both of these resources would be a wonderful prize! I can see myself using either one!

  12. My 13 year old is really wanting to get started on experiments and this would be wonderful for teaching him.

  25. Science…not my favorite subject. Anything to help with science would be great! I like the Lab Bench book

  26. If I won, I don’t know which I’d prefer. I teach for a local co-op and am always looking for VERY cheap ways to do labs. Our parents are all trying so hard to home school on a budget, and so I want to keep science class budget low… so which ever thing can be done in a class room for homeschool Co-op, that’s what I want!!!

  27. Science can be difficult at times. I am always looking for something to make it easier.

  28. Science wasn’t my strong suit in school. I need a good resource in homeschooling my children; Science Circle and Lab Bench sound amazing! I would love (hope, pray, fingers crossed…) to win an Annual access to Science Circle for them 🙂 This would make Science interesting to the kids!

  29. I’d love to have add to these items for my homeschool. I’m planning my curriculum right nowand these would be a delight!

  51. They both sound like great resources for science! I’d love to win either, but especially interested in the Science Circle. Thanks!

  52. Yay!! Loving this giveaway

  53. I’d love to win any of the prizes. Science has always been my most challenging subject to teach.

  54. I would love to win this because science is one of my kids’ favorite subject and many times I struggle with planning it out. I guess the most wanted prize would be the year of science circle and the lab bench book, because it would def. cover an entire year and beyond of science. But if I had to choose just one I would have to say the lab bench book because we could utilize it the entire year.

  55. I would like the Science Circle. It looks like a complete curriculum that my daughter would like.

  56. How exciting! My kids would Love this; and so would I ?

  57. Science is a subject that I need help in teaching. This resource would be great!

  58. I’m new to homeschooling and I would really like The Lab Bench.

  59. I would love to use the Science Circle! I’m teaching science at a homeschool co-op this year for the first time and this would be awesome!!

  60. Awesome resources! My 9 year old LOVES science…..

  61. Thanks for the great giveaway. My kids love science.

  62. I would love to win The Science Circle with all its components, wonderful!!! Science is not always easy to teach for me and this has everything I would need 🙂 Thank you so much 🙂

  63. I would love to win this so I could be organized in Science and better educate my daughters who already love science!!!

  64. I love science, but my kids aren’t so into it. I need something exciting and hands on. Thank you for this chance!

  65. I would like to win both curriculums. Science is challenging for me!

  66. I would love to win this curriculum! My girls love science and we don’t do enough experiments. This looks like an amazing resource!

  67. That’s a hard decision . . . both prizes have definitely caught my attention. I am in dire need of a Science curricula for the new year. My daughter loves experimenting and often comes up with her own experiments so winning either one of these resources would give her ample opportunities to explore and discover. If I had to choose one then I would choose Science Circle, because it includes a variety of teaching resources that can make the difficult and challenging job of teaching Science easier and more organized. I wouldn’t have to plan just prep materials and choose hands-on activities and projects with my daughter’s input. The STEM activities book looks AWESOME too. This sounds like a book she could use independently and spark her curiosity a bit more. She also falls within recommended the age group.

  68. I would love to have both, honestly. I think they are fantastic. But, only because my son is still young (5 years old), I’d prefer the Cience Circle, so I would have the flexibility to look exactly for the activities he can do.

    Thanks a lot for this opportunity!!!


  69. Thank you for the amazing giveaways! I just found your blog and can’t wait to dive in!

  70. I think I would be most interested in the Lab Bench, with all the resources and supports it offers.

  74. This looks like a great fit for our homeschool. I’d love the science circle and the Lab Bench

  75. My kids love science, but science lessons can be so hard and time consuming to put together. I would love to win!

  76. I would love the year of science Circle and the lab bench combo. I have been looking for a science resource that would be engaging for my little learners and I think this may be it! Thank you!

  77. My kids absolutely LOVE science and I would love to win both of these for them. We homeschool and it’s not always easy finding experiments/activities to do at home.

  78. What a joy it would be to win. I have found science a struggle as I seek to balance learning data with doing active learning (which requires prep and clean up). This would help.

  79. I would love to win both since teaching science is one of the biggest struggles I have with homeschooling. I need all the help I can get to make sure I’m helping my boys with where they need to be.

  80. I would love to use these with my 2 boys. Of course I would love to win both The Science Circle and the Lab Bench but either would be helpful.

  81. My son’s favorite subject is science, so this is right up our alley. We would love to win the subscription and the bench!

  82. Great prizes! I am so grateful for the opportunity I cannot pick! I would love to add one to our curriculum. Second year homeschooling two young kids!

  83. You can never have too much science in school. I would love to win both, but if I had to choose I would take the Science Circle.

  84. I have entered all three of the giveaways. It just keeps getting better and better! The boys love science. This is one subject where they don’t moan and groan when they are required to write the scientific method, they will gladly use their arithmetic strategies covered, and they want to do the experiments repeatedly! I enjoy seeing the joy in their eyes when they learn something new and are excited about it! I really need a better way to organize this subject area! What a great giveaway yet again.

  85. looks good ! great giveaway

  86. Huge science fan so this would be a sweet score!

  87. I really struggled with science as a child so I want my daughter to love it! I would be happy with any prize!

  88. Ideally I’d love to win the combo of The Science Circle and The Lab Bench. But if I had to choose between the two… I think The Lab Bench would give us the most flexibility knowing how this year is turning out to be. Thanks for the chance!

  89. What a great giveaway! I’m sure my kids would love the experiment book and the Science Circle. Thanks ?

  90. I showed my children about the bridge building experiment, and now they are crazy about doing experiments. I’d like to win the Science Circle, as I am going to buy the Lab Bench soon. Thanks for the big offer!

  91. I had awesome high school science teachers, but my strengths lean towards languages, literature, history and the creative arts. The Science Circle looks like something that could be helpful in making me a better teacher in the area of science.

  92. I love that the Science Circle has presentations. My daughter loves hands on activities so the Lab Bench would be great. I could really use them both.

  93. Ideally, I would love to win both the book and the membership! If not, just the membership would be a great blessing!
