Do you want to teach your kids to learn their elementary science facts FAST? Check out this deck of about 120 science cards that you can set out by group and memorize quickly. A good idea is to go through the cards once a week along with reading picture books on these topics to solidify the meanings of the terms.
My visual learner (who also created the cards!) laid them out in front of her and grouped and regrouped them until she could picture the groupings in her mind. For instance, when you have to memorize 9 planets it’s easier to put them into some sort of order. Obviously you’d put them into their planetary order. But what if you also put them in alphabetical order and then thought about how many planets started with the letter “M”? After playing with the cards for a while, then opening up a book on planets you’ll picture the groupings in your head while you read and deepen your knowledge on the topics.
I hope you enjoy them as much as we do! They were created with love by 12 year old Mercy. You can read her bio and support her science passion on the page I will be creating here on this blog next school year.
