In this digital age, webucational programming is readily available, providing engaging and accessible resources to the homeschooling family, at little or no cost!
My granddaughter is turning 10, and beginning 5th grade. Some of the educational channels we enjoyed are far too childish in their approach now. One thing that was most difficult to find was a quality Bible teaching that didn’t talk down or mix fantasy characters into Bible stories. I’ve also been looking for something a bit more theological, and found one that is a great launching point for serious Bible study!
The Bible Project is a channel I highly recommend this for ages 10 and up. It would be supplemented with reading the Bible (as would any good theology source). https://www.youtube.com/watch?
For deeper thinkers and harder questions: The One-Minute Apologist is a great platform for important conversations. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GMj3sKKn6a4
After finishing the amazing series, “Brain Games,” I found this gem on Youtube. Smarter Every Day will definitely make an impression. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC6107grRI4m0o2-emgoDnAA
This science and illusion site makes you think outside the box. It inspires wonder. 🙂 Brusspup: https://www.youtube.com/user/brusspup
Vi Hart calls herself a “Math Musician.” She uses math to make music and also creates doodle art while discussing math concepts. Very engaging! https://www.youtube.com/user/Vihart
What You Ought To Know has been a favorite for years! Great for middle schoolers and older.
The Story of US, put out by The History Channel, is riveting stuff! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oV8np9i-6F8&list=PL3H6z037pboHLqNBBXjHTqaxpW6yhOINU
A favorite among homeschooling families: TEDEd has a lot to offer. Some discussions may not fit your worldview, so look it over first. https://www.youtube.com/user/TEDEducation/videos
Crash Course is very useful, though at times calls for a worldview discussion afterward. This is suitable for ages 10 and up.
They also have a course for elementary, that some middle schoolers will still appreciate: Crash Course Kids. https://www.youtube.com/user/crashcoursekids
