Resources

 

There is a wealth of resources all around you.  Make use of resources readily available to you in the community. The public library is a great source of books, videos, reading contests, and public speakers. Community colleges offer courses that your upper high school students can take for dual high school/college credit. Nearby colleges sometimes will loan out science equipment for short-term use and offer field trips on interesting topics. Local businesses also are excellent field trip opportunities for the children to see how products are made. Community clubs (1.e. Optimist’s Club) often sponsor public speaking or writing contests. Most state parks offer guided hikes and wildlife contests. Your local YMCA will often offer special group rates for P.E. classes. Consider the wealth of life experiences available in zoos, art galleries, museums, planetariums, and nature walks. Boy Scouts and 4-H projects, church choir, mission trips, family vacations, art lessons, and work opportunities are all part of the homeschooling experience.
