Homeschooling Teen Magazine – June 2016

Sparky-gradHappy June! Hope your summer vacation is off to a good start. We managed to get a pretty full issue this month even though many of our columnists graduated this year and will no longer be writing for us. So we’re sad to see them go, but we’re happy that a couple of them have decided to stay on at least for a while. In this issue you will find several articles related to music as well as computers, along with two book reviews and a movie review. Alifia answers a bunch of questions about homeschooling, Alesha wrote an interesting article about wildlife, and homeschool mom Angelica Laurio tells about some awesome contests that are open to teen homeschoolers. Looking for a place to go on a trip this summer? Check out “Field Trips USA” which lists a lot of great educational travel destinations around the country. Before you head out to the beach or park, be sure to review the “Sun Safety Tips for Teens.” There is also a helpful infographic about how to hunt for a job. Read all of these articles and more at!
