Roadschooling

This is a new term for me, but one that I hope to one day explore MUCH more thoroughly! What is it?

Well, I think of roadschooling as kind of like one big field trip. The concept is simple; if you want to learn about a place, you go there. Interested in the Sequoias? Head west. Interested in the Statue of Liberty? Go to New York.

Roadschooling isn’t just about history or geography either. If you have a foodie in your family, you can explore regional food tastes. If you have a science fan, there are many science centers across the United States (and I’m sure in other countries as well!).  You can really cover every subject while on the road. Even things like spelling and math can be done while roadschooling. You don’t even have to have textbooks. Your homeschoolers can calculate distances and times while traveling, and they can learn how to spell all of the cities and states they travel to.

So…have car, will travel. Who’s with me? 🙂
