{Look Alive: Winter #Homeschooling Ideas & Downloads, Day 5: Look to Free Educator's Guides}

Posted on March 16, 2013 at 8:40 AM

Just in time before spring officially begins, I am wrapping up my series on the last day of {Look Alive: Winter #Homeschooling Ideas & Download. It is Day 5: Look to Free Guides}.

These next two websites have free teacher's guides that I have downloaded and refer to when I need them. They have little nuggets of information or activities to spur our creative juices when they may be running low during winter. So I want to be sure I keep them here on the blog for us.

The truth of it is that these activities can be used to chase away boredom during any season. I use the activities to enrich our unit studies and keep the guides organized by storing them both on my computer and Evernote.

I just grabbed a few pages or snippets so you can see some of what each guide contains. They contain everything from matching games to a horse flip book. They are just a few of the printables and ideas.

The first website, TelUS World of Science has the following guides on it:



Born to be Wild


Coral Reef

Dinosaurs Alive

Grand Canyon


Human Body

Hurricane on the Bayou


Mystic India

Space Station


The other favorites of mine that I have been using are here at Moody Gardens close to where I live. Be sure to scroll ALL the way down to the bottom to grab these guides or you could easily miss them.
