Our Africa

This website has videos made made by children in Africa, telling about their lives and the countries where they live. There is also information on various aspects of life in the continent, and opportunities to help SOS Children (the charity organization that sponsors the program.)

Nation States

A free online simulation game. You create your own country and deal with daily issues. You can participate in the "Wold Assembly" or just keep to yourself. Looks like a great way to learn about governments and politics.

The Time Tribe

This is a very well-made online adventure game that explores history. There is a free trial, and you can purchase an online only version or a deluxe version that includes a membership kit with documents and other hands-on fun.

Sunflower Education

This company publishes a variety of books (available in printed or e-book format) covering history, geography, science, and language arts topics. They include lesson plans and hands-on activities from life-size sidewalk drawings to cooking to timelines. All very reasonably priced.

Great Minds

This company offers curriculum in Math, Language Arts and History.

The math materials (covering K through 12) are available in free pdf form, or can be purchased in print. There is also an optional online component available as a yearly subscription. 

The K-8 language arts program is based on children's literature and looks like it would fit well with both Classical and Charlotte Mason philosophies. You must request a price quote, and pricing looks geared toward schools. But it's certainly worth looking into.
