RobinL in Canada Posted October 27, 2012 Share Posted October 27, 2012 ...what you meant in a post below re "natural history": "We laid the foundation in middle school, then gave them two years of natural history in which to learn science skills and learn to *be* a scientist." I know that before scientists were *called* scientists, they were know as natural historians, but I'm not quite sure how that translates into a course of study as distinct from "science." Despite my own interest in various sciences, actually making science a consistent part of our homeschooling was the bane of my existence for many years. None of my boys likes the "hands on" approach, but they also disliked doing textbook study. Now I'm down to my last son, gr 8, and rather dreading the high school years again re science due to his own lack if interest. Any thoughts?
