MEL Physics Review – coming soon

Did you see my blog post this weekend about Physical Science? I discussed a handful of great (affordable) physical science options for this coming school year. It’s listed below if you missed it. Anyway, Mel Science liked it and asked me to review their new product for Physical Science! If you have read my other posts on science, you know I’m a huge fan of their Chemistry lab product, so I am excited to dive in and see if this new product is as strong.

Their chemistry product is a subscription that delivers lab kits to your home every couple weeks. We used this product for a middle and high school student (earning college credit) simultaneously, and it was really the best home lab I’ve ever used, and that includes a dozen college lab science courses done at home.

Honest review coming soon!

2 CLEPs to take in 10th grade

10th grade is a great time to plan a first CLEP if you have a teen who studies well and retains information. While I consider 11th and 12th grades to be the “sweet spot” to homeschool for the most college credit, CLEP exams can be taken in any grade and at any age – and these two exams fit perfectly in almost every homeschool in 10th grade.
