#Homeschool Science and Environment Ideas...Websites

SCIENCE AND ENVIRONMENT
I am looking at these to add to the http://www.somuch2learn.com/   website that I volunteer for.  Ms. Arlene is a jewel, and started the site herself.  I just help a little.  There are more science sites there!

You may find some helpful, some may appeal to a younger or older child.

That's a ton of links! I will have to check some of them out and see if they are on Emperor's level. :)

Thank you for your thoughtful present of having written this article. The message seems to be given to me specifically. Our son also had a lot to learn from this – though he was the individual that found your site first. Most of us can’t imagine a more superb present than a gift to encourage that you do more.
