I LOVE free resources. Can I hear a round of applause for the internet as it relates to homeschooling, please?
No matter what age your kids are, check this out. I stumbled upon this site while researching an art unit study and I. am. smitten. Well worth the click.
The company (EduWeb) seems to be in the business of developing software with a largely nonprofit slant. Nonprofit often equals "really cool learning resource" in my book. Here's a sampling of the goodies I bookmarked for our homeschool:
Into the Book Reading comprehension in a game format. This proved to be an irresistible draw for Logan.
Amazing Reef Allows you to develop your own plot line and make a movie.
WolfQuest O.k., you have to download this one, which I hate doing. BUT ... the graphics are unbelievable. And how else are you going to teach your children what it's like to be a wolf?
The Renaissance Connection An entire site full of interactive resources that captured the attention of all four of my children.
There's a ton more on the main site. Check it out!
