We also attended the homeschool group at the Museum of Arts and Sciences, (which I couldn't give enough praise for!). For one hour and a half they talked about the scientific method and conducted an experiment with a rubberband-propelled wooden car, double-rubberbanding was the variable tested.nd, the each verified that their Hypothesis had been correct, it went further with two. They charted the results and we then scribbled out a graph from the chart when we got home to tie our day into a neat little bow. That worked out.
According to "Mr. Luis" at the museum, the MOAS now offers lots of educational resources targeting the young ones, even working with a class to improve their standardized test scores that comes over 14 times each year. Their schedule is worth a look: http://moas.org/calendar.cfm
Today I also bought tickets for a show at the Peabody that is all about the human body, including nutrition. After checking out the website for "Slim Goodbody", I can't imagine making the subject more appealing! http://www.slimgoodbody.com/tour_dates/
