The Brainy Tourist

This company publishes three books for helping elementary learners explore science. "Wild at the Zoo" is a guide to enhance a visit to the zoo; "Bugging Around" helps you go on a backyard safari; and "Our World Neighbors" compliments a trip to Disney's Epcot Center. All three books include activities, games, and information to help the learning process.

Suburban Science

This is a small mom-owned company that provides science resources. The shop on Teachers Pay Teachers offers lesson and unit plans, activities, games, and lots of printables. There are also a few online classes for high school level students. These appear to be religiously neutral materials, but don't cover evolution in a comprehensive way.

Project Wild

This program comes from the Association of Fish and Wildlife Agencies. It's goal is to develop awareness of wildlife and environmental issues. The full curriculum is available to educators (which seems to include more than public school teachers) who attend a training workshop. There is no cost information on the website, but a co-op or other group should be able to schedule a workshop. The website also has free resources to accompany many of the activities in the curriculum, so it could be useful even without the complete set of materials.

Curious Jane

This company provides DIY/maker resources for girls. They publish a quarterly print magazine and a few books, and run summer camp programs in four US cities. You can try out their materials by subscribing to a free "project of the month" email.

Legends of Learning

Online, super-hero themed science games for elementary and middle school levels. You can play for free (with ads and limited content) or pay a reasonable subscription fee for membership. (Unfortunately, you have to be affiliated with a public school to get all of the features for free! Perhaps some contact from the homeschool community would change the company policy!)

 

Teachers Try Science

This site has a collection of over 500 science lesson plans for grades 5 through 12. There is also a smaller selection of kid's experiments. There's a good search function, so you should be able to find what you're looking for, and all resources are free.
