A directory of ‘real’ educational resources for the liberty-minded household. This is a community driven directory, however Parents For Liberty has given each listing its stamp of approval. We encourage you to contribute, it’s free!
We use the term ‘school’ merely because this is a common expression. Home education directory is a more accurate description of this resource.
Our goal is to create the most useful home education directory on the internet.
Cosmic Classroom is a series of teaching modules available for $25 each from Space Center Houston. These are Unit Studies with a central theme of space. There is necessarily an emphasis on Science with lessons in astronomy, physics, biology, chemistry, geology and more. There are also subjects like math, fine arts, and literature thrown in as well.
The link below will take you to a page outlining the various modules available and their descriptions. At the bottom of the page, you will find a .pdf order form to download and print.
On the menu bar on this page, under “Education Programs”, there is a “Homeschool” option. This page is for their annual Homeschool Day at Space Center Houston. At the time of this posting, their 2012 info is still up, but watch this space for the announcement of their 2013 date. This is an excellent program geared just for those who are learning at home and definitely belongs on your field trip calendar!
This page is found in the Homeschooling section of about.com for those familiar with the site. Here you will find links to unit studies on each of the 50 states. Each one contains lessons in Geography as well as facts about each state. These make a very nice, complete book of the United States if you do all 50 and put them together in a binder.
