Science in the Home School. ERIC Digest.
This digest addresses the needs of homeschooling parents teaching science. National and state science standards documents are recommended for deciding what students need to know and should be able to do at different age levels. Sources of science lessons and activities are provided. Science reference materials such as books, magazines, and instructional television programs are recommended. Consideration is also given to the use of public libraries, parks and museums, and Internet resources as science content references. Enrollment in occasional public school science courses or distance learning opportunities are considered as possible resources for homeschooled children. A list of Internet resources for science teaching is included. (WRM)
