Free Lessons and Lesson Plans

A&E Classroom features informative commercial-free programming that can be used as a teaching resource in the classroom. A&E Classroom programming airs on the first Wednesday of each month at 4am/3c.

You can set your DVR and record them for use in your homeschooling or just for extra learning for kids.

You can watch some of them online too.

The lesson today on there is called Ur Life Online...its about teens and internet security.   It talks about cyberbullying and what to do about it. Great program for teens to watch.

They have classroom materials to download, for asking questions after your kids have watched. 

I use A&E, History, Biography, and National Geographic Channels in our homeschool often, because it not only teaches the kids, but it makes learning fun.  The kids don't always know they are learning when watching it, and I often catch them watching it outside of our school lessons, for their own entertainment.

There are lessons on Huffing, Some other upcoming lessons are The History of Halloween,  Selma Hakel, How the States Got Their Shapes, Clash of the Gods: Odysseus, Curse of the Sea,  and Constitution Week.

A&E has a place to sign up for a book I get called, The Idea Book For Educators.  Its free and they send you upcoming lessons that are coming on, with some classroom questions to drill the kids after watching the programs. You can sign up for it on this page below.
It offers, curriculum links, vocabulary, discussion questions, extended activities, websites and books.
