Friday Freebies for Learning, Lots of Good Stuff

As promised, 100% free learning resources for your homeschool!

In this week’s post for the Virtual Curriculum Fair, one resource I talked about was Ellen McHenry’s Mapping the World with Art.  Ellen also has tons of freebies for download on her site!   Many of them seem to be activities excerpted from the curricula she sells, so this is a great way to “try before you buy,” but they are also great just stand alones to supplement what you are already doing. 

We really liked the “brain hats.”   She’s got several things for studying anatomy, but also other sciences, history, geography, math, and more.

You can find all of Ellen’s freebies at Ellen McHenry’s Basement Workshop.

Here’s another freebie for you…how about a complete K-6 science curriculum?

Math Science Nucleus includes free, downloadable teacher guides, lab instructions, student worksheets, and even animated science storybooks you can view online.   This is a very meaty curriculum.  

Note:  while the teaching materials are free, many of the labs call for materials you might not have lying around the house.  Math Science Nucleus is a secular curriculum, and does present evolution and an old earth as fact, from what I have previewed. 

Disclosure:  I have no connections with the producers of these resources, just sharing some cool freebies I found on the web.
