Science experiments are a great way to help science to come alive for your children. Hands-on activities help children to get excited about what they are learning, It creates an interest in a subject or topic that might otherwise seem boring, like Biology for example.
Biology is the study of living things. There are many experiments that your older student will be working on in Biology that involves dead things, like dissections for example. Studying the animal when it is not alive can better help your child to understand how God designed them and how their special systems work.
This is something that I have never looked forward to doing. I always outsourced this when my teens were taking Biology, or I had my husband help with the dissections. Some children really enjoy them. At one time our homeschool group met at a park one day just to dissect specimens as a group with parents that didn’t mind the mess.
Easy Experiments for Learning About Biology:
Dissections have never seemed like an easy thing to me, but there are other experiments that are easy that I don’t mind doing. Maybe you are like me and don’t have time to gather up lots of supplies, hard to find ingredients or specimens to dissect. Are you looking for easy experiments to use with your children that are learning about Biology?
Since Biology is the study of living things it encompasses many different topics as an introduction to science as a whole. Many of these topics cover cells, zoology, classification, botany, anatomy and more. If you are wanting to get your children interested in science with easy experiments it is best to start small.
I suggest picking a topic and a handful of easy experiments to go with that topic. This method works great for younger children and helps them to be eager to learn more. Hands-on learning is the best way to learn about Biology.
