Top Ten Tuesday: Top 10 websites in my homeschool

Top Ten {Tuesday}

The top ten websites we use to enhance our homeschool experience:

1. Animal Diversity Web: Loads of information on and photos of animals. Great for classification exercises.

2. All About Birds from the Cornell Lab of Ornithology: Everything you need to know about birds.

3. Explore PA History: Self-explanatory. Your state probably has a site like this too.

4. Encyclopedia of Life: More animals, and plants!

5. Usborne Quicklinks: Keyed to their internet-linked books.

6. Our local library database. We can request books from any branch in our county-wide system to pick up at our closest branch. Check out your own.

7. English for Everyone: Grammar and punctuation worksheets, free!

8. Khan Academy: Math help!

9. National Geographic: photos, videos, articles.

10. Google Maps, because we need to find those field trip locations!

Go visit Top Ten Tuesday and see more lists or post your own.  But first, what are the favorite sites in your homeschool?

I love my library's site as well. It is a wellspring of information!

Gina said...

Our favorites are the coloring page sites...because we can print off pages for baby brother and little sister...and they leave us alone to get school done! LOL Thanks for your links!!!!

Our library is probably the most visited. Yesterday there was a couple of pop ins to for printing up memory work. And I have been visiting figuring out art. I realized the artists I had orginally planned for us to study don't jive as well with our history as some other artists would so am doing a last minute switcheroo on that.

The Kahn site is a recent discovery for us but I definitely plan to be making use of it. What a wealth of knowledge there!
