What kind of science materials do your homeschoolers use? Do you wish you could find free or inexpensive science tools for your homeschool?
When I look around my home, I’m often surprised by how many items we can use as learning materials. I like to “shop my home” first before I make any science lab supply purchases from educational stores.
Not too long ago I published a similar list of math materials and manipulatives and I had someone ask me a very good question…
How do you store your materials?
I store most of my materials in file/banker’s boxes. I have one homeschool supply box for each subject except for math and science (with those subjects I have two boxes because I have so many materials)! I label the boxes and store them on a shelf in our basement. I take out the materials from the boxes as I need them.
I’ve been meaning to draft up a “supply list” to store on the outside of each box, but haven’t gotten around to it yet. Maybe I’ll do that project during our next homeschool break.
We have a small home, so I need to be intentional with how I store our homeschool supplies. If you’re interested, I have several other organization tips in my post, How to Organize a Small Homeschool Space.Check out this handy list of 65 science materials you can find around the house! #homeschool #science Click To Tweet
