If you’re like me, you always thought that you had to use books or workbooks in order to homeschooling your child. This summer I started reviewing websites that could be used for homeschooling, and boy was I surprised at what I found! The internet has grown and developed so much and I believe that it is going to get even bigger and better in the future.
Here are some of the resources available to us on the internet:
1.You can go places you wouldn’t be able to go yourself unless you were a world traveler and had unlimited wealth. On the internet you can tour foreign countries, museums and parks all over the world!
2.You can see things that you wouldn’t be able to see. A picture of practically every species of animal or plant is now available to view online. You can also go on video tours of many historical places and see many science experiments and scientific phenomenon that most people don’t even know exist.
3.You can take advantage of resources not available in books or on television. There are many interactive quizzes and courses available online. You can learn a foreign language, play an instrument, work with interactive maps and more.
Using the internet can also reduce the cost of homeschooling because you don’t have to spend as much money purchasing curriculum. Many of the courses and programs available online are free and fun. So throw away all your old ideas of the internet being too complicated or limited for you to use. Start exploring it with your child and see how much fun you can have together.
