Free Trials, Giveaways and More…

Most homeschoolers are frugal. In this day and age, most everyone is frugal. If you can try before you buy, or win stuff, or find a way to get something for free, you’re going to. Right? ;)

In that spirit, and knowing many homeschooling parents are browsing curricula and programs/websites to use for their upcoming school year, here are a few opportunities to enter a giveaway or get a couple of free trials:

Science4Us is an excellent resource for elementary science. They have just launched their homeschool review program, which gives you free access for 30 days, in exchange for your review of your experience. Click on the image below to learn more. image001

Elementary Science

If you’re here, then you already know we love all things electronic/techie/gadgety/online. :D

Knowing that, it would make sense to share when we find something that appeals to us, and would more than likely appeal to our readers. With that, I’d like to let you know about a new elementary homeschool science program called Science4Us.

The Science4Us curriculum is a complete, standards-based, core science curriculum that delivers digital science experiences to early elementary students. While it would be a perfect addition to any homeschool, it would also be a great supplemental program for those in public/private schools.

They have some great interactive demos for both teachers/parents AND students! Head on over, give it a look, and come back and let me know what you think. :)
