YouTube Homeschooling

Wow we're on the second last week of of Blogging Through the Alphabet 2021. This week we are talking all things Y. Today I want to share a few thoughts on teaching our children using YouTube. My co-host Deidre is sharing Y is for Yellow in her her Lego Alphabet Series.

When Nathaniel was younger we really loved learning online via YouTube.  There are some really AMAZING channels on there.  Today I want to share a few we've enjoyed.

The Engineer Guy is one of my favourite channels.  Bill Hammack explores the world of engineering.  You can find his website here: The Engineer Guy.

Here are a few of his YouTube video's that are my favourites:
I've enjoyed these:
If you're looking for a channel to challenge your thinking and expand your horizons I highly recommend Martyn Iles The Truth of It on YouTube.

Mark Rober is a former NASA and Apple Engineer and creates interesting things on YouTube.
We're fans of Myth Busters around here so this new channel was very welcome indeed.  Adam Savage hosts the Tested content platform.

Brave Wilderness is by Coyote Person, Mark Vins and Mario Aldecoa. they lead you on a variety of expeditions featuring everything from Grizzly Bears and Crocodiles to Rattlesnakes and Tiger Sharks! Every single episode offers an opportunity to learn something new. 

Want to learn to paint with acrylics?  Follow the Art Sherapa where you can take online beginners tutorials.

If you are interested in renewable energy then this documentary is thought provoking: Planet of the Humans directed by Jeff Gibbs.

Our introduction to science in motion was by this fun channel: The SlowMo Guys.  

What are some of your favourite channels on YouTube to compliment your homeschooling?

  1. YouTube is really an amazing thing. My kids can't fathom how I survived the world before YouTube or Google. And, honestly, sometimes I wonder too! Lol. There are many great tutorials and videos to teach us on there.

    We are big fans of Mark Rober here, but many of these I've never seen so I'm excited to check them out.

  2. Great list! We love Mark Rober too. His squirrel maze is so interesting and funny!
