The Crash Course YouTube channel is a must-watch for students of all ages. If you haven’t introduced Crash Course to your children, you need to!

What is Crash Course?

Crash Course is an educational YouTube channel that covers a ton of different subjects. Many teachers and homeschool parents use the series in their classrooms because it is full of so many great learning opportunities.

The Crash Course team has produced more than 15 courses. What makes it more interesting and easy to learn is that Crash Course transforms the traditional textbook learning and presents it in more of a fast-paced format which enhances the learning experience.
