2. How to Teach Out-of-the-Box Homeschool High School Chemistry by Our Journey Westward
I love unique learning tools and Cindy shared a number of them here for high school chemistry. My favorite part is the idea that you don’t have to choose one large curriculum to use throughout the entire year. This is a wonderful way to approach a subject with your older kids. By using multiple books/learning tools to teach a single subject, your kids are bound to stay excited and engaged.
3. 32 Virtual Field Trips for American History by BookShark
In my opinion, the best way to learn about history is to experience it, not just read about it in a textbook. As much as I love to travel, my budget and my husband’s vacation time limit the number of trips we take. Luckily, we live in a time where technology allows to experience things like never before. So, if you’re unable to visit the places your older kids are learning about in history this year, use the internet to go on a virtual field trip.
