The Library: A (practically) unlimited source for Science materials

Blog Cruise Button

Marcy, our Crew Leader that hosts the weekly TOS Blog Cruises, has posted a list of upcoming topics/questions.  I was really excited when I saw this question “What’s your favorite science resource?”

The first thought that went through my head was Schlessinger Media.   I discovered educational DVD’s produced by Schlessinger media at my local library.  I am sure that if you searched the web you could find the website and maybe even order some great DVD’s but I love just checking them out for free from my library. 

I use these videos as supplements.  I especially love the All About Series for grades K-4.  My girls loved them. When the girls were younger, I would search the library for DVD’s to match the topics in the science curriculum.

My second thought for my favorite resource is even broader: the library.  My library has “theme packs” and I would sit on the floor and flip through them looking for specific science related topics.  I still browse the non-fiction shelves for books for Supergirl. 

The library is a rich resource for materials to supplement science.  It is the first place I go to to find books that we need to deeper explore a topic.  It is the first place I check when I want to get science related DVD’s.

Now I feel the need to schedule a trip to my local library to see what new science dvd’s and science books I can find.

“What’s your favorite science resource?” will go live March 13th.  In the meantime you can check out past Blog Cruise topics at the TOS Homeschool Crew Blog.

  1. That's wonderful that your library is such a wonderful resource. Ours is utterly awful! My favorite science resource might be Amazon....if only it weren't so expensive : )
