What did we use?
Since we only had two weeks to use before the review I decided to keep it simple. I browsed through lots of different topics and decided to try the science experiment videos since we have been lacking in that area.
Each week they offer a different science experiment to do. Don’t worry they also archive them (since 2012) so if you want you can go back to the older videos an watch or perform them too!
The experiments are creative and engaging. They offer videos and step-by-step instructions with explanations and learning targets. They are all simple experiments that you can do in your home.
Last week our experiment was “Orange Flash”! We were challenged to figure out how and why orange peel will make a candle flash, and to make predictions. The class always emphasized safety protocols.
This week the class showed us how to pop popcorn in a Christmas ball!
The videos are fun to watch and the kids get excited to see what is going to happen next. There is always a downloadable guide to help you out too.
I am just as excited for next weeks experiment as my children!
What is my HONEST opinion of SchoolhouseTeachers.com?
Honestly I was a bit overwhelmed at all the available options and such a short time frame. However, once I started digging in to the available options they were well organized and easy to use. It was hard to pick just one!
All the teachers are experts in their fields and do a great job interacting with the students even though it is all pre-recorded. The classes are challenging and quality. There is SO MUCH information at your fingertips! I am just excited that I get a whole year to explore and use it!
I absolutely recommend this product to all of you! It is an excellent site for anyone who homeschools from toddlers to highschool. There is something for every age and interest.
So what is the damage going to be?

So Grab it now and enjoy a full year of stress free on demand homeschool courses!
