And here’s something fun to share… way back before I started this site, I was a freelance science writer for the educational market and got to work on a few fun projects including some games. Yep! I wrote all the question and problem cards for a series of games for EduPress (which has since stopped publishing things) and still see my games at stores and homeschool/education conventions from time to time. You can find Earth Science for Grades 2-3, Earth Science for Grades 4-5, Physical Science for Grades 2-3, Physical Science for Grades 4-5, Life Science for Grades 2-3, and Life Science for Grades 4-5 online if you’re interested in checking them out.
