I need free or cheap ideas and links for web-based science and history 5th gr.

Recommended Posts

I'm sorry if I'm being kind of lazy by not finding it in other threads. :)


I have paid almost zero attention to anything web-based, because our home internet is very limited (mifi satelite hotspot only). However, when I am at my office and DS comes with me, the internet there is Fios and is unlimited. Sooo, what I would like to do is have DS use the web-based science and history on Tues and Thur when I am at work. It would save me having to try and scramble late in the day because it isn't getting done while I am at work.


Specifically, we are doing Biology and American History, 1860-present. Currently doing Civil War. Thank you for your help!

You might also check out Studies Weekly.  It's not online and it's not free (but it's cheap!).  They have a fun Civil War to the present set.  You can order any grade/state.. and you can preview most of it online.  https://www.studiesweekly.com/publications/Alaska-Fifth-Grade-Social-Studies
