You see, folks, this is why just love using the internet for homeschooling. It's not the only thing we use but gee whiz, there are some incredibly neat sites out there that really do add to the studies. I'm going to use the site I found today when we are studying DNA and Genes. There are a lot of virtual experiments and activities that are fun...I just became a lab assistant to a made scientist by building two huge neurons. There is also a Gel Electrophoresis Virtual Lab where you can measure and sort DNA strands! I mean, really, this site could probably be your science curriculum for the year!
Of course, it's a good idea to check the sites out before letting the kiddos on them
