Question by meow: What are some cheaper alternatives to textbooks for homeschooling?

Or,, is there anywhere to buy used textbooks for cheaper? Thanks

You can find used textbooks online. I always start with bookfinder.com which list them from a lot of sources including used on Amazon.
Libraries have ebooks, even textbooks. We used a biology one last year. You download it, and it is yours to keep.
Look on Amazon and when you find the text, see if there is an older edition. You can usually find one a few years older than the schools use, for a few dollars! Then match up workbooks and teacher guides available used (unused though!).
Or don’t use textbooks at all. Read a novel and write essays, contrast them to the movie, take quizzes you find online. Do hands-on science experiments and demonstrations.
If you want a foreign language try livemocha or our library has Mango.
History can be non-fiction from the library, or archeology magazines.
There are some fun ones on universalclass.com. Don’t pay for the certificate, there is an option not to and it is cheaper. You can sign up for an entire year of unlimited classes for 189.00.
