Teaching the History of Science in Your Homeschool

It’s safe to say that we live in a very different world to one that our founding fathers lived in – and even way before that. The world has developed so much, and it’s often really fun to learn about where we all started. The history of science is not only just something that is fun for us to learn, but also to teach and share with our children too. So, if you’re a home-schooling mom, maybe you’d love to teach it too?

The Events That Shaped Our Lives

It’s cool to see what has happened over the course of the earth’s life. Even before this great country was born, the world was developing, learning, and growing. As you can see in the infographic below, man was starting to work out how to survive in the world around 700,000 to 1,000,000 years ago. This is all fun for kids to learn about.

The Scientific Revolution

And then, there was the revolution. It’s said that the development of scientific methods combined with the expansion of trade helped us to nurture science as we know it today. The steam engine and machine manufacturing are just some advancements because of this. Today, we have the digital revolution of course, but it’s always so fun to see where we came from.

Great thinkers such as Edison, Einstein, Tesla and Bell all helped to shape the world as we know it today. Did you know that Tesla actually invented wireless charging? In fact, he even predicted that we would all carry around communication devices right in our pockets! There is a mini Tesla Coil in every wireless phone charger. To make your own Tesla Coil and wirelessly light up a light bulb, watch the YouTube video below.
