Homeschool "Science"

Know what one of the best part of homeschooling is? That you don't have to plan every lesson. So often, the experience can become the teacher. We didn't cancel school the other day, we went instead to the most appropriate classroom for the subject. We brought along our current book. They discovered, explored and asked questions.  We talked about water flow, gravity and what sorts of creatures live in these waters.  We talked about vernal pools. I didn't plan any of this.  I didn't initiate any of these discussions.  I just brought them and we talked. As an added bonus, they got exercise and the fresh air was fantastic for our mental health.  They will remember this experience and what they learned a lot longer than any worksheet.
