Here are your free online home schooling resources for July 2012. The focus this month is field trips. Are you looking for activities to do this summer in place of school work or in addition to summer schooling? Are some free, helpful websites. Check them out!
1. MuseumLink With its many listings of museums in the United States and Canada, you're sure to find a museum in your area to visit this summer. Museum Link also includes several cool, virtual museums for those lazy, stay-at-home days.
2. Association of Zoos and Aquariums My children love visiting the zoo and the aquarium. Although it gets quite hot outside in the summer, many zoos have indoor exhibits or water play areas that make a summer trip worth it.
3. Field Trip Factory I like this website because it breaks down the category by age or group type. Enter your zip code to find field trips in your area.
4. National Park Service There's no end to the fun that can be found at one of your local national parks. Check out this website and be surprised at how many nationals parks you never knew existed!
5. National Register of Historic Places If I was surprised by the national parks in my area, I was stunned by the number of historic places I pulled up in my area! Check out the National Register of Historic Places for fun and learning with your children this summer!
