Free educational resources, virtual field trips and daily livestreamed storytime, etc. for all ages

As an in-home child care provider, I am always looking for educational resources that I can use to supplement the things I do with the children. My daughter homeschools her six children, and the children have told me about the documentaries they have watched at home. With so many people trying to figure out what their children are going to do while they are not in school, I have seen many people sharing awesome resources to help out. My favorite so far is this list of virtual field trips, it says Mrs. Fahrney at the bottom, though I do not know her, or have a link to give her the credit.
                                                     Over 30 Virtual field trips with links

Then this schedule of free homeschooling and educational resources by grade level could be very helpful:
