February Learning Links

Wednesday, February 3, 2010

I've collected some links for our homeschooling activities this month and I thought I'd share them here. We plan on exploring Valentine's Day, The Chinese New Year, Black History Month, The Winter Olympics, as well as keeping up with what's going on in Haiti. Plus, I threw in a couple of extras, just for fun  ;)   I hope you find some useful stuff here. And, if you've got something to share, please leave a comment :D
