Part of the freedom of homeschooling is being able to utilize videos in your lessons as often as you wish. Videos are proven to be more engaging and help with memory retention while learning, vs just reading or listening alone. They make wonderful additions to your existing curriculum and make great resources for Unit Studies. Here is my huge list of educational-based and helpful youtube channels by subject.


(Since this is a list of channels rather than individual videos, and they range from preschool all the way through high school, and cover a wide variety of topics, some of which may be controversial, I encourage you to look through each channel's library of videos and carefully pick which videos are right for your kids.)
