2013/2014 Science Curriculum

By far our favorite subject is Science.  Between 4H, Earth Kids and all the other Science we do with school, we got tons of it.  So, I have saved the best for last.  DJ and our Earth Kids group will be doing Marine Biology, using a 4H project book.  If anyone is interested in it, it is in pdf form, and I can send it to you.  I think for 4H they will be studying water conservation, and we still work on Wetlands with Earth Kids.  Caitlin will be doing all that as well, plus her own Science unit studies, there are 20 total.  Below is the full curriculum for each, with the extra resources at the bottom.
