April 11, 2016 3 min read

As homeschoolers, we have loads of options to teach science at home and tons of resources at our fingertips to show our students about the principles of science! This month, I wanted to share some of our favorites with you all.

This list is a huge one, so I am going to break it down into two categories - encyclopedias and living books. You can use this list as you create your own plans. But many of these are already scheduled in one our programs, so if you don't want to do the work of pulling it all together learn more about how we can help you teach science at home.



Encyclopedias are highly visual and packed with scientific facts. Here are a few of our favorites arranged from by subject from youngest to oldest:

General Science


Earth Science
