4 Delicious Science Experiments (Self-Paced)

4-Lesson Course: Practice the scientific method as we complete 4 experiments made from food items. (Ages 5-10)

Course Summary

Using simple items typically found around your home we will complete 4 science experiments. Our yummy experiments include making ice cream in a bag, phases of the moon with Oreos, lemon volcano and editable bubbles.

Little scientists have the option of getting the weekly supplies and participating in the science activity or may choose to simply observe.   Science/STEM/STEAM activities include:  

Week One - Ice Cream in a Bag - Practice the scientific method as we change states of matter while making delicious ice cream.
Week Two - Lemon Volcano - Create a fun chemical reaction as we mix an acid and base together with our colorful, foaming lemon volcanos!  
Week Three - Phases of the Moon with Oreos - Learn about the phases of the moon with delicious Oreos.  
Week Four - Edible Bubbles - Using different types of candy, we will blow strands of edible bubbles.

Lastly, we will experiment with different ingredients in order to make longer lasting bouncing bubbles. Final online team quiz can be played over and over again and will cover all of the key terms learned throughout this course. Each week includes an official science journal, supply list and corresponding instructional video. I will provide step-by-step instructional videos for our activities in order for students to participate along at home. I often include my own children in videos to create more of an age appropriate “classroom like” environment. I want your learner to feel like they are part of a class and will be available for any questions or communications. New videos will be available each Monday. Each week students will get a “Scientist Journal” AKA a printable one-page questionnaire, supplies and information worksheet. Students can fill out the questionnaire with their hypothesis and observations and share it in the classroom.

Elizabeth McMann

Hello parents and students,

I started Teach Me Truth Christian School because of the need for families to have a safe space for learning. After reading, "Mama Bear Apologetics", I recognized the call for a Christian education platform. Not only teaching children about the Bible, but also teaching apologetics that back up the Bible with science, logic, facts, history and intellectual reasoning. I am passionate about homesteading, homeschooling and working on becoming more independent from the world and government. Most schools in person and online censor Christianity and promote everything else - and I mean everything else! As parents, our jobs are becoming more difficult to protect our children from the evils of this world while at the same time educating about the truth. Soon after starting the online platform, God called me to start an in-person school as well. If you are interested in started a Teach Me Truth Christian School in your area, please send me an email: [email protected] 

My Teaching Style: I encourage learning through enthusiastic engagement. I believe children learn best through curiosity or play. Teaching online has been my passion for six years. I was an online English teacher with VIPKID for over three years and an Outschool teacher for three years. VIPKID taught me how to engage with students in a virtual setting. They taught me how to use props, singing and demonstrations to increase learning. I encourage student output and participation during class.

About Me: I have a bachelors degree in marketing and science. I am an entrepreneur and business owner. I have also been in the beauty industry for over 15 years. I am a homeschooling mother to my twin sons and my daughter. I am constantly seeking creative ways for my children and students to learn new things.

My Homeschooling Style: As a homeschooling mom of 4, my favorite part of teaching is sort of "tricking" them into learning. What I mean by this is, we often play learning games and sing songs. In addition to this, my children have learning games on their devices and we listen to learning songs in the car. Some of our favorite online resources include: Easy Peasy Homeschool, Education.com and Miacademy and Flock School. Some of our favorite learning games are: ABC and sight word bingo, memory match, shout-and-grab, ABC caterpillar board game, dinosaur nest game, Uno, chess, checkers, matching, fill in the blank phonics sounds and more. We love arts and craft time as well as create weekly science projects. My kiddos enjoy both live and self-paced online classes. Our kids participate in chores, taking care of our chickens, ducks, dog and cat. We love projects and currently are building a chicken coop. Lastly, our book work is a small part of learning each day.
