Resources & Links: Units & Themes

General: Lapbooks, Units/Themes, Lesson Plans, Curriculum

Homeschool Share - absolutely one of my favorites, and one I have mentioned before and recommended to most of my friends.
As a part of homeschool share they have a section of miscellaneous lapbook templates (I was able to find a really awesome book log for our ocean lapbook here) - as well as blank lapbook templates

Kidzone - this site doesn't have a lot of different themes but the ones they do have are great - I found both snakes and spiders on this one (as well as sharks) that have been extremely helpful.

Perpetual Preschool a site with lots of different themes there are different crafts, songs, games, science, food/snack ideas for each topic. Some themes are OVERLOADED with ideas... a great resource for putting units together for younger students 

Homeschool Helper - offers free unit studies, free lapbooks, worksheets, notebooking pages, and even record keeping forms

Making Learning Fun - I found a lot of age appropriate printables to go along with our units at this site.

National Geographic Site - offers lesson plans, crafts and teaching geography 
The Education Cafe offers free homeschool resources: worksheets, lesson plans, unit studies and more!

Hubbard's Cupboard - I have heard so many people recommend this site and have never really had the time to check it out (it's quiet large) but today I took a little time to sit down and do it and I'm impressed!! Lots of information on this site.

Classroom Snapshots - things that I saw here that I was interested in included, calendar binder (very similar to what we use, with links to printables), mini offices, science and social study themes - complete units)

PreKinders - printables, lesson plans, themes and more!! Love this site

Twinkl  offers lots of printables and worksheets in every category/subject. It is a british site so the money printables are not American currency.
