Thank you for helping us to make Finishing Strong a key resource for families who are homeschooling through the middle & high school years.

Looking for fun and simple science activities for your middle school students?

Want to make sure your tweens/teens understand key science concepts before they enter high school?

Have kids who like to bust basic science myths and misconceptions?

Then you’ll definitely want to take a look at Susan’s post where she shares her family’s experience with the book, Air is Not Oxygen: Essential Science You Should Have Learned…But Probably Didn’t. Her boys had a great time working on the experiments that were included.

Are you homeschooling a high schooler or about to? Are you worried about the high school years? This week I shared about an upcoming online conference that is 100% focused on the high school years. If you answered yes to either of my questions, you’ll want to consider attending Embark.

Are you Homeschooling High School or soon will be? You’ll definitely want to check out Embark, a 3-day webinar event dedicated to homeschooling high school. During the event, you’ll have live access to sessions taught by veteran homeschooling parents, homeschool graduates, and field experts. Also, each presentation will be recorded so you can go back and review or catch up with anything you miss.


Did you get a chance to read these great tips from some of our readers?

4. 5 Ways to Create a Timeline Online by Loving Learning Freely

I love timelines. We’ve used them in our home school for years. They’re a wonderful way for kids to “see” history and understand how it all relates together. All of ours have been physical timelines, but I definitely want to check out the digital versions Beth wrote about. What a great idea!
