Science in the Kitchen

One of the common concerns about homeschooling is “how to do lab science.”  I’ve taught my children at home through the eighth grade and honestly, that has never been a problem. On occasion, I have purchased lab materials, such as dissection tools and specimens, test tubes, and fruit flies for genetics experiments. But usually, I can find nearly everything I need for hands-on science right in the kitchen or medicine cabinet.

And the perfect place for us to work on all those messy experiments? The kitchen, of course!
