The early years of schooling involve a lot of crafts and creative lessons. One site that have used extensively in the past was Enchanted Learning. There you will find activities, printables, EASY craft projects, curriculum ideas, and more. All core subjects are covered and, if you use the search function, you are bound to find an overflow of appropriate teaching aids for whatever you may be focusing on. Most of the content is geared to pre-Kindergarten to 3rd grade students.
When we raised ladybugs from larvae we did the Life Cycle of a Lady Bug project and, after four years, we still have it (the popsicle stick legs were my idea).
The best part? Much of the site is accessed for free! If there is a specific lesson that only subscribers can see/print, an annual subscription is only $20. Fantastic deal for the wealth of information presented. The only downside is that the site is horribly ugly and boring – but at least it works.
So if you are looking for fun and education projects to do, you may want to see what you can find through Enchanted Learning.
