Topic: Free Downloads
Resource of the Week
I first ran across Kids Discover Magazine in the mid 1990’s. I didn’t have children yet, but I was impressed with the quality of the magazine and subscribed when we started homeschooling. Kids Discover covers science, space, nature, history and culture with easy to understand illustrations and articles. There is no advertising so it’s a particularly appealing publication for kids. I’m featuring this resource not to convince you to subscribe (although I do think it’s a fantastic homeschooling resource), but because they have great free downloads on their website.
The Kids Discover website offers a large selection of free downloads that can be used without a subscription (they also offer lesson plans specific to the magazine). The Infopackets are quality resource excerpts from the magazines that are multi-page PDF files. Printable Infographics are available on dozens of topics, along with topical articles on the website. Free registration is required to access the downloads.
