We recommend watching the lesson with a printed copy of the doodle notes. Encourage your student to use the polls or simply answer the questions out loud. Use the answer key to evaluate what they learned afterward, or, if they are a self-directed learner, they can use it themselves to double-check their learning.

What do our students say?


Finding Science Mom during the quarantine supercharged our entire school year. From her Chemistry course to her Earth Science class my 4th grader has been engaged and excited every week for class. These classes have consistently ranked as his favorites all year. He spends hours after each class telling everyone all about what he’s learned, singing the songs and showing his projects. 

The lessons are engaging and funny, with catchy songs that really help visual and auditory learners grasp concepts. The lesson book is beautiful with hand-drawn pictures, detailed information and hands-on projects. Bonus for homeschoolers - our advisor LOVES all the great samples produced! 

For anyone looking for a balanced science curriculum, this is it. 

My son says ‘Now I can understand the world around me so much more!’
