I wanted to let you know that I added a New Page: Hands On Homeschool Activities. This is a page (rather than a blog post), so I wanted to link to it here – for those of you who come to the blog from time to time to check out our latest posts! (As a new page, it’s wouldn’t be listed here.)

Ultimate Hands-On Homeschooling GuideStudents learn so much from hands-on learning! By doing a project or experiment, students gain a better understanding of the material. There is no substitute for activities that require kids to use their hands as well as their minds! Kids are engaged and want to know more. And not only that, but they remember the activities longer.  I’ve found that my kids might forget some of the details about a topic we’ve learned, but by reminding them of the activity they did they can visualize the activity and then they’ll begin to remember more details about the subject at hand.

I wanted to create a page that you could scroll through to help you find some fun, engaging activities for your kids. This page has dozens and dozens of hands-on activity ideas (in pictures!). This is a static page (rather than a blog post), so you’ll need to click here to see all these photos! Hands On Homeschool Activities

P.S. I was asked pretty often, what grades the kids were in when they did these various units.  Although this is a little hard to answer because we are a homeschooling family that has done science and history together as a family, I came up with a series of free curriculum guides for families called  Creating Your Homeschool Curriculum, Free Resource Guides

These are FREE 35+ page resource guides that I put together to help answer some basic questions:

  • What subjects should I teach my 4th or 5th grader?(or kindergartner or 7th grader!)
  • Where do I start?
  • How do I know what to teach my kids?
