Discover & Do Science

The ideal video supplement to your Sonlight Science program.

There is no better way to delight your kids with the wonders of science (and reinforce lessons!) than by experiencing it firsthand through hands-on activities. With Discover & Do, your children learn by actually doing the science!

Children will not just memorize the steps of the scientific process. Rather, your students will conduct simple, engaging, hands-on experiments in your home and actually use the scientific method to explore their world in a fun, enjoyable and interactive way.

There are three components to Discover & Do:

  1. Experiments
  2. Videos
  3. Supplies Kits

Learn more about each below.


Discover & Do: Science Experiments

Discover & Do: Science Experiments 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 Experiments are designed to teach your students to think like scientists and use real scientific skills and practices. Each experiment ties directly to that week’s reading material for an interconnected experience. Students won’t just receive information, but will actively explore the world around them.

Discover & Do: Science Experiments are included in Sonlight Science Programs K-C. Additional levels coming soon!

Now you have even more assurance that Sonlight Science provides an outstanding science education — at home.

Discover & Do: Science Experiment Videos

As a busy parent, you may not have the time to demonstrate every experiment for your children. With Discover & Do: Science Experiment Videos, your students will be able to watch the experiments and learn do it on their own.

These videos provide tons of additional information, instructional content, and bring the experiments to life in a way that can’t be done at home—they truly enhance your science experience.

These science experiment videos are an ideal supplement to your child's education. These videos are digital only unless specified (Discover & Do Levels 3 and 4). Your purchase includes digital access to the videos so you can stream them directly from your sonlight.com account and watch them anywhere you have internet access!
