One of the benefits of homeschooling is being able to take lessons on the road and learn anywhere. The amount of time families can travel varies from very little to several months a year. (Some even spend the whole year on the road! This is intriguing to me.)
We are blessed to be able to travel many weeks a year. This can make planning your homeschool year a challenge, but the benefits are so great. There are so many learning opportunities ready to be explored. This collection of posts will help you think outside the box as you incorporate learning on the road into your homeschool.
Real Life Learning Opportunities While Traveling
Traveling provides an excellent opportunity for children to learn important life skills. It may require a little extra planning or a little extra time to include your children in the process, but the benefits of your children learning these life skills far outweigh any inconvenience.
Documenting Roadschool Learning
Take advantage of the many new experiences and learning opportunities you will find as you travel around (even if it is only in your state) by documenting their learning. You are not limited to having your children write reports. Get creative and use different forms of narration including hands-on activities. Your children will not only have fun, but will continue to solidify the concepts they learned and you will have a record.
Game and Activity Suggestions Perfect for the Car
We have learned so much at our destination and stops along the way. But we have also learned a lot as we drive from place to place. From listening to a good audio book together to playing games in the car, we have learned a lot on our trips. Here are some fun activities you could include on your next trip.
