of things homeschoolers can do with ease is add travel to school schedules.
At the beginning of the year I look at what sort of topics we plan to
explore during the school year, and then my student and I plan our field
trips. Weve had field trips for Art, World Culture, Foreign
language, Science, Engineering, Geography and History.
I got the travel bug when I got out of college. I sailed the East
Coast, I traveled in the US. When I started working I took a job that
involved travel and I ended up traveling to Europe, Northern Africa and
the Pacific Rim. I hope that my student has the same wandering feet! He
seems to. Anyone can write about their travels to exotic places we wanted
to do something different. What you'll find here are the travels that
are part of our homeschool. I hope you like what you find.
don't have to spend a fortune and travel to the ends of the earth. An
adventure can be found in your own town or within driving distance or
to sound cliche, in your own back yard! Go camping,
spend a weekend at an inn, go canoeing. If you really want it to happen
you can make it happen. Give the travel bug to your students and watch
them grow and mature. It's a great way to "socialize"
your homeschool on the road is always an experience. Many people have
heard of homeschooling but still ask a lot of questions anyway. Once they
find out they are in the middle of your "classroom", they share
a wealth of information with your student -especially if your
student is willing to ask questions.
love to "hit the road" and the longer we have been homeschooling,
the easier it becomes! These pages are probably my favorite ones at this
the Road" gives resources and ideas on how to take
your homeschool on the road. It has a start of a list of good places
to go in the US, information about international travel, information
about getting online on the road and a fun section called "tips
& tales" - stories about other homemschoolers
on the road and some of the tips they have to offer.
documents how we have used travel in our studies. Read
about our travels and how I implemented them into our studies. Organized
by the headers: Topic (What we studied), Subject(s)
(the "subject" the travel "covered"), Destination
(where we did the study) and Items to Explore (what
we offer to explore for your own look at what we did.
Tourist" was a page that was fun
to develop because it discloses where even this traveler is an armchair
tourist! It also offers some great reading and other resources for
those who prefer to stay in their own neighborhood.
Travel Log" - We rarely hit the road without our laptop.
Before there was a blog, there was a travel log book. This page has
some of our log entries and a listing of our blog entries from most
of our travel. It also has a link to our photo journal, because sometimes,
pictures are better than words!
