Make the most of Hurricane weather - Earth Science for Kids!

As I was searching around the internet for fun ideas to teach my younger daughter more about Hurricanes and the recent weather here in Illinois that has been affected by them, I found this fun website that has tons of great Science Education for kids.

Ducksters Educational Site


It looks like a great place to find fun information about a variety of things including hurricanes. . .



And additionally has a huge selection of science subjects just perfect for a rainy day, or additional learning for a school project.



This is not a paid post.  I just personally found this website to be fun, informational, educational and one that I will utilize with my 9 year old for weekend or rainy day fun.  Personally I would prefer she be on educational websites like this one than playing Minecraft all day!

{Review & GIVEAWAY} Apologetics Study Bible for Students HCSB Plus Contests, Videos and MORE!

As a Christian Mom of three growing kids, I often find myself praying that not only with all of my children have a strong faith of their own as they grow, but that they will take the moral and biblical values that we as parents have tried to teach them, into the world with them.

My son will be 14 this week, he is in 8th grade and from a young age (2nd grade) has had all manner of worldly influence from his peers come at him that has at times been difficult for him to overcome on his own.  

I have researched different types of Bibles and Study Guides to find resources that will help me teach him the necessity of keeping in touch with God, growing in his Faith and choosing to do what is right, good, honest and pure in a world filled with bad choices and peer pressure.

The Apologetics Study Bible for Students is a wonderful resource for him to use from now through College years and even beyond to help guide him as he grows physically, mentally and spiritually.

An Academic Planner to keep you organized with school, activities, homeschool, work and more

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.
 
It’s Easy. Assignments, due dates and after-school activities can be seen at a glance.

It’s Functional. Homework and studying are easily scheduled during “available” times.

It Puts the Student in Control. Students can plan time for schoolwork around after-school activities OR without leaving things until the last minute.


My Review:
My 12 year old son used to have a hard time keeping track of his homework assignments.  For the past couple years, he has used an Academic Planner to keep his assignments organized so he knows what books and papers to bring home each day.  I liked the idea so much that I started using a planner for my blog reviews as well, but the one I have been using didn't really meet my needs.
