Oceanography, Meteorology, Astronomy


Recommended Posts

So, for the last couple of years, I've written my own science curriculum.  Usually following a similar sequence of topic material, good literature and reading materials, lapbook, and projects/experiments/demonstrations.


But it's SO much legwork, and I'm running out of time to even begin for this coming Science semester.


Any ideas/thoughts on 6-8 week studies of these specific topics: Oceanography, Meteorology, Astronomy?  


Anything already packaged and done?  



Update with ages/grades:  I teach one science "class" with all four of my children.  The oldest two, ages 11 and 10, have higher expectations than the younger two, turning 8 and 9.

My astronomy lover has really enjoyed Astronomy for All Ages by Harrington this year. The projects have been interesting and worthwhile. It's loaded with them. A telescope and star watching books would be plenty to round it out.


The Kids Book of Weather Forecasting went over fairly well too. Put a weather station kit with it perhaps.

We have all three of these books, and they are beautiful! They are so colorful and informative, that my son read them for fun.
