Here’s a list of our favorite 15 FREE educational apps. Many are free all the time, however a few of them are free for the next week only. For homeschooling parents, checkout Science House especially, there are over 80 science experiment videos that are just like being in a lab without the cleanup needed!
Heads up: Most of these are only for the iPhone, though you may find them if you search Google Play.
