Hands-on Homeschool Science

Expect an exceptional science education

Sonlight offers complete and easy-to-use hands-on science programs from kindergarten to college-level lab sciences.

Sonlight Science covers the full spectrum of science studies—from earth, space, life, health, physical, electrical, and technological science, to college-level lab sciences (chemistry, physics, biology and more). Your children will learn these subjects in greater depth as they circle back through each topic over the years.

Sonlight Science will inspire you and your children to love science!

Sonlight science lays a firm foundation of scientific understanding as it builds on, and fosters, your children's natural curiosity about how the world works. Delight your children with the wonders of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM).

A medley of books and experiments

Sonlight marries the joy of reading with the excitement of hands-on experiments to bring you complete, high-interest science programs. Each Sonlight Science program includes an Instructor's Guide, a collection of great books, and hands-on experiments. Let's look at each.

Science Instructor's Guides

Each Sonlight Science program is anchored by a customer-renowned Instructor's Guide. The Instructor's Guide (IG) provides structure and a complete schedule for the entire year: what books to read when; what experiments to do, videos to watch, and more. The IG also includes question prompts, explanations, hands-on activities (beyond the experiments), and additional notes to enhance the reading and reinforce what your students are learning. No need to create your own lesson plans as the IG clearly lays everything out!.

Sonlight integrates a Christian perspective into our Instructor's Guides, so you and your children can look at the world through the lens of God's Word, the ultimate source of truth. We highlight God as Creator and Intelligent Designer. And we encourage your family to first seek to understand differing perspectives before critiquing them, so your children gain the ability to discern.

Each guide includes a list of what science supplies you will need, both for the present week and the week to come. (Need to save a milk carton for next week? Now you know!)

Instructor's Guides in levels K-J also include Activity Sheets filled with questions and simple activities, charts, illustrations, and pictures to help your children remember what they’ve learned. Teaching multiple students? You can purchase an extra set of Activity Sheets for each student (or if you plan to reuse the program with a younger student later on).

A collection of great books

Each science program comes with gorgeously illustrated books that captivate students and entice them to read more. Your children will not only learn the facts of science but also gain a love of discovery and get to know key scientists. These books become valued references for years to come.

Hands-on science experiments

There is no better way to delight your kids with the wonder of science (and reinforce lessons!) than by experiencing it firsthand through hands-on activities and experiments. With Sonlight Science, your students will conduct simple, engaging, hands-on experiments and activities, all while reinforcing the concepts learned in your reading.

New in 2021, Sonlight Science levels K-C now include Discover & Do: Science Experiments. With Discover & Do, children will not just memorize the steps of the scientific process. Rather, they will conduct simple, engaging, hands-on experiments at home and actually use the scientific method to explore their world in an enjoyable and interactive way.

Each experiment ties directly to that week’s reading material for a more linear progression from reading to doing. Thanks to this new approach of Discover & Do: Science Experiments, your end-of-week experiments reinforce and apply the concepts studied in the days previous so you can plainly see your child’s developing mastery of particular science concepts.

Sonlight adds extensive homeschool science kits that include key supplies, making the experiments easy-to-do. These are boxes of materials that you probably don't have lying around the house, plus the stuff that, even if you own it, you're not likely to find at a moment's notice: everything from marbles and powerful magnets to wire, thumbtacks, straws, mirrors, seeds, and paperclips. This includes consumable supplies and non-consumables.

Additionally, Sonlight Science level K includes the all new Discover & Do: Science Experiment Videos. These videos provide reinforcement of the concepts observed during the experiment and heard in the weekly reading passages. The highly entertaining videos reenact all of the experiments your students perform, providing review, additional factoids, and excitement to truly enhance your entire science experience. Science curriculum programs D-E include the original Discover & Do DVD + Digital videos.

Some families watch the videos first, then perform the experiments. Some let their children watch, and experiment on their own.

And some families find they don't get time for every experiment with their children. These videos allow them to still watch the experiments. Stay tuned for new Discover & Do videos in additional levels!

Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS)

The new, 2021 Sonlight Science levels K-C are designed to follow the classic Sonlight model of learning (reading, discussing, and doing) while also adhering to the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS). These research-based, up-to-date science standards are simply good instructional practice. Dozens of scientists, esteemed scientific institutions, and science-based businesses have put their support behind these standards.1 Now you have even more assurance that Sonlight Science provides an outstanding science education — at home.
