This giveaway has now ended; thanks for your interest!
Welcome to this week’s giveaway–sponsored by Be Naturally Curious!
From Valerie at Be Naturally Curious:
“I am a mom to two energetic and inquisitive young girls and also happen to be a former college Biology professor.
One of my greatest passions in life is to help ALL kids experience the joy in learning science and exploring nature!
I believe this is best done by focusing on concepts and reinforcing learning with multiple, non-traditional teaching techniques, which is why I started Be Naturally Curious, creating science and nature mini-courses for kids grades K-5.
I love to share and discuss ideas about science and learning on our Facebook page —please come connect with us!
I’ve enlisted the help of several other scientists, many of whom are also moms, to make mini-courses on really important or really fascinating scientific concepts (these are the real thing—nothing watered down here!).
Current mini-courses include:
- Take Off with Airplane Science
- A Wide World of Vertebrates
- A Butterfly’s Evening Adventure
- Freddie and His Ocean Friends
- Molecules are Everywhere
- The Adventures of Carbon
- Discovering DNA
- Mighty Magnets
- Life in the Desert
- See with your Ears!
- Our Neighbor, the Moon!
They are designed to give parents the tools to teach higher-level scientific concepts to all styles of learners. Whether you have a kinesthetic learner or a visual one, your child can master everything from molecules and DNA to ecosystems and the carbon cycle.
As moms ourselves, we specifically designed the courses so they can be done easily at home or on a trip with minimal supplies—most materials can be cut directly from the course print out. We believe science can be done anywhere!
Each mini-course focuses on a different scientific concept, whether it be how airplanes fly or how dolphins echolocate.
Every mini-course is designed to appeal to all kinds of learners and a wide range of ages (grades K-5), and includes a beautifully illustrated story, a board or card game, a movement-based activity, a craft or modeling activity, and an experiment or outdoor exploration activity.
Try them with all the kids in your family—each person has his or her own best way to learn!
Each mini-course also includes additional resources to allow kids to follow their curiosity (the most important thing we can develop!) and concept badges kids can add to their Science Tool Kits (print out included in each mini-course.)
One Simple Homeschool reader will win a complete set of Be Naturally Curious mini-courses (worth $110), in PDF format!
PDFs can be printed in their entirety or in part for the activity materials.

For us in Australia, spring has sprung. So my younger kids at the moment are finding all the little insects buzzing and crawling around fascinating. I have four at home – 14, 11, 6, 4; any sort of experiment ALWAYS goes down well. Thanks!
Our girls are 6, 3 and 5 months. We have a spider that made a web right outside our windows so they have been able to get a close up view of how a spider lives and catches it’s prey! It is so cool and so nice to see it up close but also to know it is outside! ???? They are fascinated by it.
My boys (4 & 6) love the weather. We’re into weather journaling right now, which has been a great way to integrate spelling, penmanship, math & time telling. And, weather log symbols are just really cool. It’s been a fun time of year to track the changing temperatures and watch the turning leaves.
Love your kit! Sarah
My kids are 7 and 6. My son loves airplanes, physical science, building, etc. My daughter loves animals and chemistry. We would love to win.
I have 4 year old daughter who is interested in how leave change and fall and, as always, what bugs and animals are living around us and how they live. She also is interested in trees and flowers growing.
My boys are 2 and 5 and LOVE Science! They are most interested in everything space and rockets and the sun/moon.
My 4.5 year old is naturally curious about space science and how pretty much everything works. 🙂
My children are 6, 4, 2, and 1….They are naturally curious about wildlife animals in their natural habitat, animal anatomy (we raise our own livestock for meat and butcher occasionally) , as well as astronomy (we like to identify constellations and study the stars) and also gardening- planting seeds, etc.

My 2 year old likes to watch bugs whenever we see them in the yard, and he loves robots. My 11 year old asks about random stuff like breathing in space, heat transfer in cooking food, animals, architecture, and how batteries work. My 3 month old just likes to eat and sleep and figure out how to get his hand in his mouth. 🙂
This would be so awesome.
Ages 7 & 10 and they are naturally curious about the Animal Kingdom! We are currently studying Apologia’s Flying Creatures of the fifth day.
My kids are 8 and 5. My 8-year old is always curious about anything that has to do with science, but lately he has been very zoned in on animals and their habitats. My 5-year old has recently become fascinated by space.
Our kids are 2nd and 4th grade. We just finished an animal unit and are starting the human body next. Science is their favorite subject
My school aged kids are 6 and 4, and they’re interested in anything that grows.

My kids are seven, five, and one. My oldest is feeling naturally curious about her body and how it works. My five year old is interested in whatever his sister likes. 🙂 The baby is interested is gravity, in particularly how it relates to food being dropped from his tray.
My kids are 4 & 6 – they are very interested in space, seasons and how things like paper and glass are made
My 4 yr old loves all things science! He loves looking up at the stars, loves learning about rockets and space shuttles….he loves gardening and learning about how things grow…and he absolutely loves learning about animals – especially Tigers! These mini-courses look fabulous!
My girls are 6&8. Their questions recently are about what things go back into the earth and what doesn’t (decomposing). Why do we have worms and if they breathe w their skin how do they not suffocate under ground digging tunnels. Ants how do they know where they are going. What is a shooting star. These are this weeks science questions.
My children are 4, 9, and 10. They are curious about military aircraft, cars, feathers, dogs, inventing/inventors, and horses. Thank you!
My primary/elementary kids are 7, 9 and 12. They would be keen to look at molecules, DNA and carbon. Science is particularly a favourite of my 7 year old, especially anything to do with rocks and geology.
