I love the fact that I was able to lighten my curriculum load when we moved here to Ecuador. It really makes you resourceful when you have to limit what physical books you can pack in two suitcases.
Today, I thought I would share what we are using which is free middle school science curriculum and magazines.
The earth science book is one that Tiny just started reading.
By the way, these are huge downloads. The Life Science book is a 448 page download. So give it some time to download.
I love the fact that both of these books give ideas for hands-on activities, have vocabulary words in the margin and have challenges throughout the book. A nice bonus for a freebie.
Note: The Earth Science book is a 391 page download, so it give some time to download also.
Then we have been loving these free science magazines for middle school kids.
They are from National Inquirer, a middle school science education journal. There are several free issues to download and read.
When you click on each issue, it tells you what the theme will be and some of them have additional lesson plans to download.
Each free issue is chock full of pictures, ideas and questions to stimulate the science mind.
We have been using them as part of our reading time too. If you just need a break or want to try something different, you can’t go wrong with free curriculum.
Hugs and love ya,
