Homeschool Entrepreneur

This site has lots of resources for family and teen business owners. If you want to make your family business a learning tool, or help a teen to start a business, this is the place to go. There are links to lessons on business and entrepreneurship, blog posts and articles, and lists of helpful software and books. There is some religious content, but many useful tools for secular families as well.

Bouncy Maps

This is a great map site with an unusual twist. You can choose a criteria (such as population, religion, or agriculture) and the map will change the sizes of countries, states, or provinces to reflect the data. This is a very useful tool for visual learning, and it's just a fun site to explore!

The Student's Friend

This is a great free resource for world history. The main feature is a concise narrative of world history that can be downloaded or viewed online. It's a no-frills text with just a few maps and pictures, but loads of information. There are also lesson plans, ideas for projects and writing assignments, and rubrics to go with them. A truly useful place to begin planning a world history course for jr. high or high school students.

Novel Guides

This site has free guides to a huge collection of novels. Guides include a short summary of the novel, plus summaries of chapters, character profiles, metaphor and theme analyses, and author biographies. If you register for a free account you can also access discussion forums. (Warning: there are some very persistent video ads on this site! Nothing inappropriate, but definitely annoying!)

Wildscreen Arkive

This site has an extensive collection of images and videos of wildlife. Look for species, places, or topics and find information and beautiful photos and videos to learn from. There are also some games and teaching resources, including worksheets, study units and craft activities.
