Homeschool Adventures: Learning Through the Power of Field Trips (Live, Learn, Work at Home)
Four years ago, Melissa Calapp, a homeschooling mom of 19 years found herself involved in a group with the most adventurous homeschooling moms she’d ever met. She found herself running after her children off on adventures but wondering if they should really be home with their books. In an effort to resolve this internal conflict, she began to research the effectiveness of field trips and the tweaks that could make the learning from them even greater. In this book, Melissa explains the research behind using adventures as learning, how to get the most out of them, plan them, and overcome excuses not to go. The second half of the book includes lists of places to go for your circumstance whether that is large families, just teens, children in special circumstances and many more. Homeschooling gives us the freedom to use the world as our classroom, this book gives you a logical plan for doing so.
