      Stellarium is a free open source planetarium for your computer. It shows a realistic sky in 3D, just like what you see with the naked eye, binoculars or a telescope.
      It is being used in planetarium projectors. Just set your coordinates and go.

      ClickSchooling It was created by Dianne Flynn Keith, who wrote the book Carschooling. All you do is sign up with your e-mail address, and you will receive an e-mail each day with free homeschooling resources. Each day is devoted to a different subject. When we have nothing to do, we check out our clickschooling folder, and usually find a fun activity.

          Wonderful older science book, It’s in a PDF file and is over 400 pages written for kids.

          Google Docs scanned this wonderful, old book and made it available in PDF for free download
          This classic was in Harvard's library and Google scanned it.

            This is exciting! I just found out about it. You can download free public school textbooks from this site for middle and high school.

            http://www.ck12. org/flexr/

            Teacher editions are available too, in the right sidebar on this page. It appears you have to create an account with them. It also appears that you can "create your own" textbook by selecting only chapters that are of interest to you. Available subjects at this time are math, science and engineering.

            These are downloadable for several electronic devices and formats, including PDF, ibooks & Kindle. (And any of those formats can, of course, be read on a computer with the right reader application. Both Kindle and Apple make readers for their electronic books available for free, so you don't need an iPad or Kindle if you have a computer!)

            The link to books in the Kindle store is here:
            http://www.amazon. com/s/ref= ntt_athr_ dp_sr_1?_ encoding= UTF8&search- alias=digital- text&field- author=CK- 12%20Foundation

            The ck12 organization appears to be a collaboration of various universities and public school educators, with a few businesses involved also. The content is in line with California public school standards.

            Bizarre Stuff to Make in Your Kitchen

            Age Range: 10 and up (with constant parental supervision)

            This website is an archive of classic "old school" science experiments from the early to mid 20th century. The experiments are easily made with stuff you will find around the house — especially in the kitchen. That said, the creator of the site doesn't guarantee all of the experiments will work or that they are all safe, so parental discretion and oversight is a must. You will find experiments that include every branch of science including:
            • Gasses and Liquids
            • Force, Motion, & Balance
            • Locomotion
            • Temperature
            • Sound/Light
            • Electricity
            • Atomic
            • Chemistry
            • Life
            • Earth/Astronomy
            • Communications
            • and more! Skool Time - 03-08-2011, 08:39 AM -
              Escape From Knab

              Age Range: 8-18 (approximately, non-readers will need parental assistance)
              What genius! Escape from Knab is an engaging, educational, and multi-media simulation that requires players to use their math and critical thinking skills to make financial decisions in order to earn enough money to escape from the fictitious planet Knab.
              When you get to the site, sponsored by USBank and others, you'll discover this is not just another math game. The player must get a job in order to earn enough money to buy a $10,000 ticket back to Earth. You have to fill out an employment application and a W-4 form - and you'll learn about concepts like "tax deductions" along the way.
              Once you have employment, you must budget your money by deducting rent, food, and transportation from the net wage after taxes. Plus, you have to save money (to buy that ticket home) — and you'll learn about interest rates, savings accounts, investment opportunities, and risk versus rate of return in the process.
              Oops! An emergency requires an unanticipated expense — a can of oxygen! Learn how to write a check to the oxygen salesman.
              An opportunity to buy a house on Knab helps you to learn about mortgages, homeowner's insurance, and property taxes.
              Find out the financial advantages and disadvantages of buying or leasing a hovercraft.
              After working so hard you may want to take a vacation — does the money come from savings, a loan, or a credit card — and what are the repercussions of each?
              It's time to return to Earth — sell your house and calculate the capital gains tax.
              Can you manage your money wisely enough to buy a ticket home? Take your whole family to Knab and find out!

    Just got this email and wanted to share it!! We love Aurora in our house and I especially love the free!!
    Michelle

    I’ve got something pretty cool to tell you about.
    You may know about Aurora Lipper (from Supercharged Science) and the incredible free science classes she gives. I heard that a few months ago, she had over 2000 people register for one.
    So, the good news is that she’s doing another live video tele-class this week!
    You can reserve a free spot by clicking here:
    Homeschool Science Education

    This class is about light waves and lasers. Kids will learn about everything from
    what lasers actually are to how to make rainbow shadows (have you ever made
    a shadow that wasn’t just grey or black?).
    Plus, during the class, kids will build an actual working microscope!
    Register for free here:
    Homeschool Science Education

    Get this… The class will actually be led by a REAL
    Rocket Scientist!

    Not only did Aurora complete her Master's Degree in Mechanical
    Engineering with a 4.0 GPA and go on to do Ph.D. work at Stanford
    University, and work for NASA, but...

    …She is also an EXPERT at teaching Science in a way
    that is FUN, exciting, and an incredible learning experience
    for your kids…

    Click here to register for the class:
    Homeschool Science Education

    I HIGHLY recommend that you register and attend this great free class.

    It’s going to be a blast and a great learning experience for your kids at the same time.

    Enjoy!
