Go to the library! Let them pick a fiction book or two for leisure. Then tell them to pick a book from the non-fiction section that interests them in several different catagories: science/health, history (world, American, state), maybe a biography. Go to the library as many times a week as you/they want.
This is probably a good idea even if you already had curriculum. Sometimes it can be quite an adjustment from public to home school. They may balk at just reading library books at first, but once they try it, might enjoy the slower pace for a break before starting a new program.
Some libraries even have old school textbooks available. Just ask your librarian. Also, if you search enough, there are many websites that offer free lessons on many different topics.
