    Default Homeschool On A Budget

    What are your favorite cheap or free resources for 7th grade curriculum? Money is tighter than I would of liked this year so I'm looking for some suggestions. We'll be carrying over from last year for Biology, History, and Writing. I'm pretty much positive that we will start off with the Key To Math series to fill in some gaps, then add in a spine later. I have a list of websites that can be used if needed and likely will to some degree but I'd really like some more print options.

    Library! Books that cover history, and of course literature as well. Documentary DVDs, audio books, etc.

    MEP Math is excellent and free.

    I second the library.

    There's so much out there that I think you're best off saying what you'd like to do and then asking for resources for the specific skills, level, and topics you're hoping to cover.

    You may try to see if your library has the book Homeschool Your Child for Free.

    I find Build Your Library fairly cost effective since most books we can get for a dollar at our used book store or at the library for free.

    You might find these literature study guides to be helpful. Glencoe Literature: Literature Library

    Have not used this but it does look interesting for science: Free Science Curriculum for Middle School - Eva Varga

    Might want to check out Khan Academy for history, science, coding, film making (they are partnering with Pixar) and more. They are certainly more than just math.

    If you have a device...smart phone or such, Dragon Box Algebra, 12+, and look for apps for other things like root words, geography and such. Dragon Box is a personal favorite at my house, one of the best apps I have seen.

    Should have added, I have my 7th grade son doing Khan Academy US history. Never did find a US history book that I liked, this seems to be doing what I want. It is nice that it has tests with it...most of the questions actually go with the content, though we have found a few that don't match up so I don't make my son redo if he gets most of them right. They also have world history and AP...I just went for regular as he isn't high school yet. Some of the reading sections (not all are videos) also have questions at the end that you could have your child answer as well if you like.
