My absolute worst subject in school was Chemistry! I hated it. Looking back, I realize it may have more to do with the fact that my teacher taught directly from the book without a lot of hands-on instruction. But, whatever the case, I didn’t enjoy Chemistry and I got a bad grade in it (that was a tough pill to swallow for a perfectionistic student used to breezing through most other subjects).
Twenty years later and I’m a homeschool mom thinking about next year when my daughter should probably take Chemistry. And, I’m dreading it…..
So, I was just thrilled to hear that there is a vendor "on board" with the Homeschool Crew called Friendly Chemistry. To me, those two words don’t belong together – they’re an oxymoron. Can teaching AND learning Chemistry actually be a "friendly" experience? I don’t know! But, I’m sure going to find out – along with several other members of the Homeschool Crew who also have high school aged children.
