I know how much homeschoolers enjoy free printables! But as the kids get older, it is more difficult to find printables that are both educational and suitable for their age.
My mission is to provide teachers and homeschool families with the tools and inspiration to engage their students in meaningful, hands-on science. You will thereby find all sorts of printables for middle school students here, with more added all the time.
I have organized them on my Science Freebies page by category. The list also includes detailed lesson plans and powerpoint presentations in addition to printables.
Please take the time to explore the enormous collection of resources. They are just waiting to be discovered and printed.
On my Science Freebies page, the printables and lesson plans are broken down by science discipline and include service learning, citizen science, science field trips, and multidisciplinary unit studies.
The most popular printables that I have shared include:
- Scientific Classification
- Plant Kingdom
- Monocot vs Dicot Plants
- Geospheres & Our Earth System
- Bird Anatomy – includes two printables, Feathers and Bird Survey
- Simple Invertebrates – includes two printables, Charting the Animal Kingdom: The Invertebrates and Invertebrate Investigation
- Burning Sugar
- Periodic Table of Elements Scavenger Hunt
