In the weeks leading up to Christmas, we usually take a break from our usual homeschool curriculum and study something fun with a Christmas theme. We read Christmas books, listen to Christmas music, create Christmas art, and learn Christmas science.
Yep. Like this…
Whether you have a white Christmas or not, snowflakes are on people’s mind this time of year. Study how snow is formed, cut paper snowflakes, read about Snowflake Bentley, or create your own snow painting!
Learn more about your Christmas tree. Identify the trees at your local tree farm or tree stand. Learn about why evergreen trees stay ever green and how trees change during the seasons. Go on a Tree Scavenger Hunt with this free printable.
What are reindeer anyway? Can they really fly? Are they only found at the north pole? Find out!
The clear winter skies make stargazing amazing. Learn about the winter constellations. Study the possible explanations for the Star of Bethlehem. Make your own Star Trails.
Have any other Christmas science ideas to add?
