Your Home~Grown Primary Life Science Lab


SO Big from SO Little!

As old as I am, it never ceases to amaze me how a tiny living thing can grow grow into a humongous living thing ~ think apple seed to apple tree…..

The Life Science of the Human Body & Nutrition as well as the Life Cycles of Plants & Animals will help increase your child’s understanding of his/her body, the food it needs to grow as well as  how all the living things grow from little to big while not always looking  like their parents.


The Promise of Life

How does my body grow? Did you have to eat this when you were a kid? Why do some baby animals look different from their parents?

Inquiry, exploration & discovery of the world  are critical to the healthy growth & development of your child. 

Engaging and encouraging investigations (instead of trying to explain everything) using experiments is a meaningful & relevant way to introduce the many concepts of scientific discovery.

It can promote lots of brain activity, help build problem solving skills, increase her/his understanding of the world as well as equip your child with the ability to practice these methods in a variety of ways throughout his/her lifetime.  

Major added bonus~ it’s A LOT OF FUN !!

Your Home~Grown Primary Science Lab for the Life Science of the Human Body & Nutrition as well as Plant & Animal Life Cycles is one of the 4 main Sciences your child will be learning as a Primary grade school student. I created hands-on, interactive “labs” for the other 3 Sciences~Physical, Earth & Ecology~ so you & yours can enjoy more exploration & discovery time together.

This 41 ~ page (includes front & back manual covers) download,  copy & printable resource in an 8″x11″ PDF will prepare and reinforce the concepts your child is & will be learning in the classroom, while having LOTS of fun with you !

Tips & Ideas

Prepare for the Investigations by reading, gathering & organizing all materials, tools & supplies beforehand. Involve your curious scientist in as much of this process as possible. Make it his/her lab with your role being the “Safety Inspector”.

Check out the Activities to decide which ones are age-appropriate for your child. If you have multi-age children, encourage them to share & monitor the younger ones.

Questions, experiments & explorations are CRITICAL to a successful learning environment. Be an  interactive guide & encourage her/him on the path of discovery.

Let your child (ren) set the pace. Go off on those tangents for teachable moments. Promote Inventions!!!

I hope you & yours enjoy these Science Lab Investigations as much as I enjoyed creating it.

I’d love to hear from you!
