Ideas for Co-op Classes

Here are all the class titles we can remember from our eleven years of homeschooling. I am intentionally not including details, so that you can be creative in structuring your own classes and not just copy my suggestions to paste onto your students. Some of these classes were strictly for K-3rd graders, other classes were obviously for high school students, and a few were made more/less complicated to adapt to all age levels. As always, I will be happy to answer specific questions, but try brainstorming on your own first to see how you would do some of these.
