Homeschool Ideas & Resources

If you’re a homeschooling parent or considering homeschooling this upcoming school year, you may be overwhelmed at all the homeschool resources out there. Where should you start when it comes to planning a curriculum that’s engaging without taking hours (even days) to plan? Have no fear! Here are some homeschool resources to get you started!

Social Studies & Science Homeschool Resources

First, one of the reasons many parents (including myself) choose to homeschool is the freedom for students to discover and learn for themselves. Our research units are the perfect ways for them to do so!

There are so many things to cover with social studies and science curriculum. These social studies and science research units also cover many topics and are available in both digital (Google Slides) and printable form. No matter what your elementary student is studying, these units will help them navigate informational text while learning about important social studies and science topics. In addition to research resources, each unit comes with a project to demonstrate an advanced understanding of the concepts students read and wrote about. For example, in the dinosaur research unit, your student will make their own salt dough fossils!

Current Research Unit Topics Include:

Social Studies Research Topics:

If you love all of these topics, be sure to check out our bundles! You’ll get all of the topics above PLUS all future research units!

Choose between print + Google, print only, or Google only, and science + social studies, science only, and social studies only. There are a total of 9 growing bundle options to choose from!

The packets also include lesson plans for art activities for creative inspiration. Play some music and have your child dance! I love GoNoodle’s silly videos even for older kids.
