Free elementary science materials

The Science4Us early elementary science materials are a great online way to structure a science curriculum.  It’s available for $7.95 per month for homeschoolers. It’s a digital curriculum for either the web or iPad.  Your students can get hands on with either their 400 hands-on activities or you can supplement it with your own ideas.

They also allow people to use a fraction of their materials for free. The best way to access their free science interactive activities are through this Symbaloo webmix.

What’s New? A Full High School and Middle School Science

Time4Learning Most people in the homeschool world who have spent any time online have now probably heard about Time4Learning.  But, in the fall of 2013, there’s some big news.

Time4Learning Adds a High School Curriculum. Announced in July and available in August of 2013, the Time4Learning high school curriculum for home school students covers the big four subject areas and then some. Time4Learning high school offers an online, interactive curriculum for ninth through twelfth grade that can be used for homeschooling. Courses are parent-supervised, student-paced, and designed to help students achieve college and career readiness.

Time4Learning’s second big announcement came in October of 2013, they added a very solid intense middle school home school science curriculum.   Middle school science is organized into three primary courses:

Earth/Space Science Course
Life Science Course
Physical Science Course
Nature Of Science Supplement

Nature of Science is also provided as a supplement for each of the courses. Materials are taught using a combination of animated lessons, instructional videos, worksheets, quizzes, tests and both online and offline projects. All three middle school science courses are correlated to state standards.

Disclosure. I am not an unaffiliated party and this is not pure editorial. I have a financial interest in Time4Learning so this article should be considered promotional in nature!  I wish everyone disclosed.  I frankly am sick of seeing industry newsletters which claim to have “the top five writing programs” and which sound like an editorial review when in fact, these are just paid promotional spots.  This is an actual example of a newsletter that arrived from an industry leading group this week in my email inbox!
