Take a Field Trip
Take virtual field trips to the cultures, times and places you’re learning about in your current curriculum. Have students do independent research on a home computer, compiling photos and information, and maybe even have them teach YOU what they’ve learned!
Use Online Organizational Tools
Have students set up a blog about their studies and adventures in homeschooling or set up an online calendar for their assignments. Using an online schedule will help build organization skills, and will give your students a daily technology routine.
Learn a New Language!
Use the Duolingo app to supplement foreign language lessons. Their gamified platform inspires kids to keep learning and makes learning a new language very fun!
Turn that tablet into something educational! During breaks and to supplement lessons, use platforms like TeacherTube and CuriosityStream to watch documentaries online.

Subscribe to MakeCrate! Students learn coding and build their own circuit boards – work on it a little each day, as a lesson, and work up to completing each project!
