Welcome to our on-line resources for ecology, astronomy, and physical science (CC Cycle 2 Science for those in Classical Conversations)!
As is all our lists of links, this page is a work in progress. For those wishing to find creative ideas for science throughout the year, I highly recommend joining Pinterest because there are Science Pinterest Boards Galore over there. I humbly state, for the record, that Pinterest overwhelms me, so I usually only use it when I am trying to find a particular resource or if I’m planning for a birthday party. (But to be honest, I’m not sure which is worse – Pinterest or my disorganized bookmarks bar. At least Pinterest has pictures, although my brain doesn’t seem capable of handling so many ideas at once. The irony of this is that many people think the same of my link lists.)
Remember this is a link “buffet.” It is not intended that all of these resources be used. In fact, for those who use Classical Conversations, it isn’t necessary to supplement Classical Conversations with any crafts, worksheets, or on-line resources. (You can read why here.)
If you’re a worksheet fan, you can look into Teachers Pay Teachers (sort your searches by price to find the freebies!) and Education.com (several of those are referenced below), although free downloads are limited to ten per month. But… you can start now and possibly stay ahead of the game!
Because of the enormous amount of time it takes for me to research in compiling these link lists, I ask that you do not copy and paste the links in other documents, websites, or emails, but instead send people to this webpage. Thank you for honoring this request!
Finally, if you know of resources that you think should be on this list, feel free to leave a link to it in the comments or email me at halfahundredacrewood @gmail.com, and I’ll update the list with your contribution! Thanks!
