I am looking for curriculum ideas for a homeschool group comprised of five to six 2-3rd graders. We meet in the library once a week for about an hour. I'm looking for something that can serve as a guide or jumping off point for topics; I don't have a lot of time to lesson plan and search for appropriate materials each week, so something somewhat planned out would be ideal. I am happy, however, to get supplemental books and put together materials if they are listed out in a lesson plan.
We did a big unit this year on the human body, and it worked out really well. I had a book of lesson plans, which we more or less followed. I was able to supplement those activities with books and videos from the library, games, and a few other things.
I would love to do another science unit, but we can't really do messy experiments or anything at the library!
If anyone has any experience with specific curriculum or books I'd love to hear it!
