With schools closing for at least the next month keeping the kids occupied will be challenging. Whether you're trying to keep their minds sharp or thinking about homeschooling, there are several educational companies offering free programs.

After spending the last week with some family and their children tackling homework can leave you feeling old and stupid. For instance fraction problems in math, you may know the answer, but not the proper way to achieve said equation. Thank goodness for the internet and the website, Kids Activity.com

You can get help with math, science, reading, music, and many other school subjects along with several activities just for fun. Here are several educational companies stepping up and waiving subscription fees. You can even take a free virtual tour of several places including Ellis Island and Stonehenge.
