Top Science Activities for After School

Next to math, science is my older son’s favorite subject. After school science learning activities are a good way to nourish his interests. Today I’m sharing the year’s best science activities from the hosts of After School.

Fun science activities for kids, perfect for after school learning

As you can see in the photo, my older son’s absolute favorite after school activity is birding. He’s become so knowledgable about ornithology through reading and going local birding walks. He now teaches me all sorts of things!

Now that it’s the end of the year, the hosts of the After School linky are holding a bit of a celebration to bring you the best posts in a variety of after school subjects. After you’ve gleaned some science project ideas from this list be sure to check out ideas for reading, writing, outdoor fun and more. Links are at the bottom.

    I am so impressed that Kiddo continues with his love of birding. It’s fun when they develop true passions for something and can become experts in the subject of their choice.

  2. I think it is awesome that your son is so into bird watching. Such fascinating animals!
