This blog presents a taste of Owen and Anya's home education journey. The home education experience is varied and unrestricted, Owen and Anya go on regular trips, attend local 'home-ed' groups and generally self-direct their own learning. At home they cook, watch documentaries and films, research things they are interested in on the internet, develop their own computer games and much more. There is no set curriculum so they are free to discuss and explore anything that interests them.
I've just made a huge investment in a Chemistry set. Owen and Anya love to do experiments so I thought this set would really allow them to develop this interest. Not cheap though at £168 from Amazon!
The Thames & Kosmos CHEM C3000 includes a wide range of supplies, including professional grade test tubes, an alcohol burner and chemicals that are needed for the experiments. The guide is the most important part of the chemistry set. It covers each experiment in detail, ensuring young learner are able to perform the experiments properly to get results. There are also color photos of the experiments, which is a great way to see if your results are the same as the photo. The set also includes safety gear which is an absolute necessity when working with chemicals.
