Heart of Dakota Science: Something to Love for Everyone

was one of his
best lab sheets)

Science in Heart of Dakota is an adventure in itself! It starts with reading amazing living books, and then it adds in a variety of ways to respond to that reading. This variety appeals to all students, as there is always something a student will love best to do! In Creation to Christ, creating a science notebook entry appeals to visual and solitary learning styles. Giving an oral narration appeals to aural and verbal and social learning styles. Answering 5 comprehension questions with scientific terms and Biblical application appeals to logical learning styles. Finally, conducting an experiment and logging it in a science notebook uses physical and visual learning styles.

I love that he is able to respond to his science with his less than preferred learning styles!

made this a social
event by inviting his
brothers to join in)

Of course our son Emmett’s favorite way to respond to the reading is conducting an experiment. He makes this physical response to his reading also into a social and verbal response (his other two favorite learning styles) by sharing the results with all of us at any and every opportunity. I love that he is not only able to respond to his science with his favorite learning styles but also that he is able to respond to his science with his less than preferred learning styles! Of course he is best at his favorites, and not quite as good at his less than favorites. So, by having all of these learning styles represented each week, he looks forward to his favorites, and he works on those he needs to improve upon. This balance helps him become a well-rounded student, who can respond in a variety of ways to what he has learned.

So, no matter what learning style your entrepreneurial student loves best and has been gifted with by the Lord, Heart of Dakota’s science has it covered! And not only that, those less gifted styles… Heart of Dakota’s got those covered too! So, your kiddo will be the best at what God’s intended and good at the rest! Have a great week!

In Christ,
Julie

Some passions of mine are homeschooling with Heart of Dakota, cooking with All Recipes, reading Jane Austen in a bubble bath, singing along with lyrics that strike a chord, making family traditions, creating organization out of disorganization, and writing words - in emails, posts, and books - that glorify God. I'm a teacher and an editor by trade. Here's a quick rundown of my numbers... 24 years of teaching (7 public school, 17 homeschool), 6 years of college (4 undergrad, 2 graduate for my masters in education), 18 years of working for HOD, 48 years old, 24 years of marriage, 3 sons who are 19, 16, and 12 - and I believe that should about 'sum' it up!
