With so much uncertainty in the air as we move into the new school year, children’s book publisher Quarto Kids is proud to announce that you can Enjoy Free Video Lessons for All Ages with Quarto Classroom, a free YouTube video library of lesson plans led by expert creators.
Authors like Kitchen Pantry Scientist Liz Lee Heinecke, award-winning poet Joseph Coelho, and BBC personality Cerrie Burnell have created video discussions and projects for homeschoolers, teachers, and parents to use as supplemental materials to their own curricula, with opportunities for students of all ages to engage in each subject.
Additionally, many lessons are also accompanied by printable materials so students can engage with the lessons in ways that help them absorb the information they learn no matter the subject or setting.
Parents: Please use caution when visiting Quarto Classroom with your students. The videos offered present a wide variety of topics and worldviews, not all of which are compatible with a Christian worldview. Please choose your lessons carefully.
