I’ve decided to start sharing some of the more amazing, creative and engaging educational tools I’ve found while home schooling my kids. I am always on the lookout for websites, curriculum, apps and other visually rich media I know will appeal to their visual-spacial (3-dimensional) learning style. Interactive, experiential-based tools work best with their ADHD and Dyslexia and allow them to retain more of what they learn. If you have educational tools your kids have loved, please share them in return!

This public educational website is one of my favorites! It provides an entertaining, interactive learning tool that allows kids and (*ahem*) kids at heart to design their own aircraft. In each state you’re given different materials to experiment with and test in the simulator. If you get it right, you’re off to the wild blue yonder! If you’re wrong… well, thankfully it’s only a simulation! Enjoy! Oh, and let the kids have a turn now and then too.
