Once upon a time, in a place not far from where I am now, there were many Cohorts at our table learning every day. As the big Cohorts uncovered new learning, the little Cohorts and the Underling wanted in on the action. It didn’t much matter what activities I had mapped out for the little Cohorts, if the big Cohorts weren’t doing something like it too, it would fail to launch most times. I soon learned to align their topics with adjusted reading and activities for each age group. If you are teaching multiple ages, you may notice a similar situation at your homeschool. You are not alone. Recently a homeschool mom asked me if I could provide her with a Thomas Edison reading list that included kindergarten through high school reading choices. The list is below and is by no means exhaustive, however it does have something for multiple age groups. The links below are affiliate links. You can read my disclosure policy here.
Elementary (ages 5 to 11)
MIDDLE SCHOOL (ages 11-14)
HIGH SCHOOL (ages 14-18)
Empires of Light by Jill Jones is written for adult audiences, but is a fantastic book for mature readers. It is about Edison, Tesla, and Westinghouse. Add this to a physics or American history reading list.
