So how do you feel about science? Science concepts have never been easy for me. In college I visited my biology teacher after class so he could explain the subject matter to me again — sloooowly.
However, my husband happens to be very gifted at understanding science, and our five-year-old is following in his footsteps. I don’t know how many science questions he asks me in a day… but I can tell you how many I can’t answer! My response is either to google it, send him to his dad, or request a book from the library.
So I was pretty excited to find quite a few posts from After School Linkies that take tough science concepts and simplify them for kids.
