Homeschooling FREEBIES: Bible Studies, Homemaking, & HS Resources
I came across this site called Hippo Campus. HippoCampus is a project of the Monterey Institute for Technology and Education (MITE). Its goal is provide FREE high-quality, multimedia content on general education subjects to high school and college students. The covered subjects are: Algebra(in English & Spanish), US Government and History, Biology, Calculus(in English & Spanish), Environmental Science, Physics, Psychology, Statistics and Religion. The project has given you a choice in that they have correlated with several different textbooks that they have put the text and multimedia online or you can take an online course.
Future Christian Homemaker's Handbook can help you! I found that the author has made the lessons available online for free! The FCH Handbook contains 12 chapters of cooking lessons with both teacher and student pages. These lessons include related skills such as setting the table, manners, writing a menu, and planning nutritious meals. The homemaking section includes lessons on doing the laundry and cleaning the house. Web resources are listed where you can find free basic sewing projects for children. Devotionals are included to provide sound Biblical instruction. While this handbook is geared to use with girls, I am using it to teach some basic things to my boys as well as my daughter.
The last freebie for today is bible studies that you can download for free! I love listening to Kay Arthur. On her ministry's website are some downloadable Bible study guides with free registration. She has the current Bible study available along with past Bible studies. After looking through a few of them, I see great potential in using them with my high schooler for his Bible class.
