Hi Parents! Recently, I added a new section to the this blog. It is called "DIY Science". There you will find fun and easy science experiments and activities you can do with your kids. Each activity includes a list of materials, directions, questions to think about and/or extra activities you can do. For additional fun, post a comment or send me a picture of you and your child(ren) conducting one of the experiments and I will include the picture on the page’s slideshow.
My name is JoAnn Fredette. I am a teacher at Schenevus Central School in Schenevus NY. I teach high school Living Environment, Chemistry and AP Biology. I have created this site to be a resource for my students, their parents and other science educators. Here and there I will also post about things that I am up to outside of school too.
