You can use chemistry to make your own bouncing ball. Once you understand the basic technique, you can alter the recipe for the ball to see how the chemical composition affects the bounciness of the ball, as well as other characteristics.

Science Experiments. Welcome · Digital Public Library of America. Science for Kids - Fun Experiments, Cool Facts, Online Games, Activities, Projects, Ideas, Technology. Curriculum and Classes in a Click! Free Homeschooling. Free Homeschooling? If you are on a limited budget free homeschooling can be done, if you don't count basic supplies like paper and pencils.

With a library card and internet access, you can homeschool very inexpensively. You really don't need a complete curriculum that guides you and your children through every subject. Don't worry about “keeping up” with the public schools or be concerned about your own skills in teaching their children. You know your children better than anyone else, and believe me, after seeing public schools from the inside for ten years, it is not hard to surpass them in the quality of education your child will get at home. Understand that the reason public schools use the materials and methods they do is because there is one teacher and 25 or more students. Also understand that there is a lot of time wasted.
