    Looking for more fun educational resources? Introducing EducateWithMe!

    I’m always on the lookout for ANYTHING educational that might capture my kids’ interest.

    I really do mean ANYTHING - be it a book, science kit, or even a live insect – anything that might capture their interest and keep them off the Playstation or Nintendo for a few hours.

    And I’m willing to bet that as a parent, you’re the same way.

    Actually, I know it for a fact, because I get emails every day from parents who have bought our Science Activities Bundle for their kids, and want to know what else I recommend.

    Well, I’m very happy to say that we finally got into gear, and put together an answer, once and for all…

    Introducing… EducateWithMe!

    That answer is EducateWithMe!

    EducateWithMe! is a place to find good, educational products for your child, to make sure that they spend at least part of each day using their brain for something other than staring into a screen.

    Educate With Me! aims to be the best, the most comprehensive list of high quality extra-curricular educational products for kids on the Internet. No matter what the interests of a child, we aim to assist you in finding the right product for them to keep them interested, engaged and hungry for more.

    Our mission is to make learning and education more meaningful and effective for students, and to make the subjects they are interested in easier for parents and teachers to teach. We do this by providing you with a list of many of the best products available. Our goal is coherence. Educate With Me! is not a large collection of disparate resources. It is a focused effort to clearly help you teach and build on children’s educational interests.

    (P.S. If you have a product or service that you feel might be useful to our fans please be sure and drop me a note and I’ll see what I can do to assist you in spreading the word.)

    I’m going to keep this post intentionally short – I want to give you time to explore!

    Educate With Me! brings you another simple science experiment from our Science With Me! (Science With Africa!) series.

    As spring times approaches and we have more reasons to head outside with the kids this is a fun experiment to do with them. Katy who is only 4 years old did it!! My 12, 10 and 9 year also enjoyed it.

    For our new readers…
    Science With Me! is trying to spread science and scientific thinking around the globe. To this end, we have sponsored an expat in a rural community in Africa to get African kids doing Science With Me!
    We hope you in the Americas, Australia, Europe and Asia follow suit!

    Enjoy this experiment! And be sure and leave Katy a comment below!

    If you are new to our site be sure and browse through our Science With Me! archives, sign up for our free activities, or just come back in a few days for a new post.
    Enjoy!

    Research shows that parental involvement is just as important as the quality of a school in predicting how well children do academically. When parents are supportive, the children do better, regardless of socio-economic status, ethnic background, or the parents’ level of education. Read More..
