Science is definitely not my favorite subject. While I found it fascinating as a child, I’m not sure I ever really understood how things truly worked, like electricity. However, after living on the road for over three years, I had to learn more about electricity as we can only use a certain amount of amperage in the rig.
I have two science-loving children that are absolutely fascinated with all-things-science. So I have re-learned quite a bit over the years and now understand more than I did, but it still isn’t my favorite subject to teach.
And that’s what I love about the internet; you can find just about anything you need to help you teach a subject. If you’re learning more about electricity or your kids just want to know, check out these Free Printables and Unit Studies About Electricity.
