Schoolhouse Review: Science Naturally

One Minute Mysteries: 65 More Short Mysteries You Solve With Science was a fun review. I can tell the kiddos liked it as well because they would ask me to read the book almost daily.

Science Naturally not only has science mysteries to solve but math mysteries as well! You can see all their fun and entertaining books here.

You can own One Minute Mysteries for $9.95. Currently they are having a special, you can purchase three books for $19.95 plus $2.95 shipping by using coupon code 3SPEC, that’s a $12.90 savings!

One Minute Mysteries is geared toward children 8-12 but my 13 year old daughter loved the book as well. Of course most of the mysteries she was able to solve rather quickly.

Science Naturally

The authors of the One Minute Mysteries series are a father/daughter team. They both have a passion to increase science and math literacy. I know for many homeschoolers science and math can be intimidating subjects. 

One Minute Mysteries: 65 More Short Mysteries You Can Solve With Science also includes 5 bonus math mysteries.

Here is what you will cover with these fun mysteries:

  • Life Science
  • Earth and Space Science
  • Physical and Chemical Science
  • General Science

The one minute mysteries were a perfect addition to our homeschool days. With the younger children I don’t always get to science. It’s usually one of the first subjects that gets pushed to the sidelines when I get busy teaching so many other subjects.

Science Naturally gave me a fun way to fit this subject in especially on those busy days when one has appointments and errands to run. No need to skip science we would just bring our one minute science mysteries along with us.

My children ages 8, 10, 11, 12, and 13, wanted me to read this before bed time as well. We would all sit in the living room and enjoy 3-5 mysteries. Usually it was one of the older children who solved the mystery but they were very kind and always let Lance try before they guessed and/or I read the answer. Each story/mystery was one page long and the answer which was the ending of the story, was on the back of the page.

What I loved about this book is it made the children think with the brain teasing mysteries. Anything that has my children using their critical thinking skills gets A+ in my book. You can read a few to your children today by visiting the Mystery of the Month page.

I am always looking for a science read aloud book and this one fit the bill with 65 short stories.
