Just like educational screensavers, these free classroom posters are a great way of bringing some low-key learning into your homeschool.
Posters are a great visual aid in homeschooling. Pinning several around the house can spark interest and lead to some fascinating discussions . I think it is harder to forget something you have seen in image format.
But it is important to switch them around fairly frequently. That way they catch the attention more.

Not a poster, but a homeschooling idea for using pictures of your children against a geographical or historical background.
Print them out (by clicking on the picture), then pin them to your classroom wall, or fridge, or ..well, you get the idea! Usually that is enough to get the children asking questions about them - a great piece of homeschool strewing. Be sure to change them around regularly or everyone begins to ignore them.
These educational classroom posters were made using images within the public domain, or from other public domain materials, and are free to use. Apart from the picture of my children against the Taj Mahal, please feel free to offer these posters from your website.
