Traveling Opens Young Eyes

You might not think that traveling will do your younger kids that much good. After all, they’re only going to sit in the back asking, “Are we there yet?” and demanding to go to the bathroom, right? Actually, we’ve found that traveling can be a really good way to introduce a lot of different subjects to our boys. Our oldest son gets a lot out of the destinations, but both our second and seventh graders get a lot out of the trips themselves. We try to make sure we travel in areas where the geography varies a good bit and stop at overlooks to investigate the surroundings – we’ve introduced subjects like botany and geology that way. So, even though we are away from home, we are still adding educational opportunities while we are traveling, which we call Roadschooling!
