Title: Free/ Low Cost Educational, Video Travel, & Cultural Links
Post by: Firefly369 on April 14, 2020, 09:08:11 PM
Parents who never homeschooled are suddenly homeschooling.  Millions of people are stuck on house arrest by the government.

We all know there are soo many new and pre-existing free links that can help occupy people during this time. 

Here's a thread to share links.

(These aren't necessarily homeschool links, but I have those too if you need something specific.)
