Valuable Resources for Homeschoolers Provided by PBS Learning Media and Several Other Teaching Resources

I have mentioned before that I am a big fan of PBS Education materials!  I had to share this latest collection of World Explorers with all of you other homeschooling families because it’s valuable and interesting material which covers specified educational standards and also, it’s free. You can’t beat that!
