Maria Montessori knew that children would tire of memorizing facts and learning about scientific concepts that seemed vague or difficult to comprehend. Without the relevance of seeing how science can actually relate to everyday life, children can become disinterested and disengaged from this discipline. Therefore, home and school educators are continually searching for ways to make this subject exciting and meaningful. They want exercises that are easy to present, easy to understand and encourage the student to engage in further independent reading and study. Exploration Education meets these goals and more by specializing in a unique science base hands-on curriculum that can be tailored to meet the student’s needs. See http://www.explorationeducation.com for complete details.
