Rave!

October 13, 2011

I just wanted to post a quick one about a site I just discovered that, so far, I am rather impressed with.

JASON Mission Center is a fabulous, free site that has great science curriculum for free! As a homeschooler, you would sign up as a homeschool teacher, and set up your virtual classroom. There is already made curriculum, resources and the ability to create your own curricula as well.
The geek in me is really dancing in my head at the awesomeness, haha.
Enjoy!
