  19. What about... "I am Malala" by Malala Yousafzai "The Terrorists's Son" by Zak Ebrahim (a TED book)
  20. There are several former Shaker villages in Ohio. The North Union Shaker site in Shaker Heights and Whitewater Settlement in New Haven have the most to see, from what I can tell. Museums, walking trails, old buildings.
  21. The Christian Kids Explore...series by Bright Ideas Press. They have both Chemistry and Physics.
  22. There are 2 other books in that series..."On the Far Side of the Mountain" and "Frightful's Mountain." "Rascal" by Sterling North. The "Julie of the Wolves" series by Jean Craighead George. "Island of the Blue Dolphins" by Scott O'Dell. "Hatchet" by Gary Paulsen and the ither books in the series.
  23. There is a "Homeschool and NCAA Approval" FB page. I don't believe you need course approval if your son wants Division III, only DII or DI. But there is a lot of helpful info. Also check out a recruiting website...Next College Student Athlete is one. HSLDA has a lot of college help on their website. There'a a FB group called It's Not That Hard to Homeschool High School that has a lot of info, too.
  24. We used the Biology for my 10th grade boy this year and we loved it. Planning on using Anatomy and Physiology next. Lots of resources and choices...videos, labs, living books, besides the text and workbook pages.
