There are literally thousands of educational websites and online resources, covering a multitude of subject areas, but it seems impossible to know which ones are high-quality AND fun enough to keep your child’s attention for awhile.
(So you can, achem, work or get something done around the house.)
Whether you need interactive games for your little ones, math skills help for your elementary aged children, educational videos for older kids, or academic help for your high school student, these websites will definitely help. Some of the websites even offer lesson plans for homeschooling parents and teachers. And they are all free!
When online learning and school closures hit parents across the country, we previewed these resources for kids of all ages. Now in 2021, we have updated this list, and we can confidently say that they are the best educational websites out there.
Added bonus? These sites truly offer guilt-free screen time to parents.
