Science...another one of those enigmatic studies that students either love or hate. Science can be a high interest topic or one of disdain. How can we make science interesting for all of our children? Typically, the type of curriculum, or how the subject is presented makes all the difference in the world to how our students perceive it.
If we can present science in an interesting manner - one that corresponds with our student's learning styles - and engage our students in science that they can do. They can make real live connections, and applications that will last a lifetime. Teaching science with hands on experiences, including experiments and projects makes it real to students.
There are many homeschooling curricula out there that have been written expressly for this purpose. We particularly enjoy the Apologia series. It makes the connections and allows for experience making science real for the student!
